Prague: New Colors on a Gray Life

By Tomas Jelinek

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2003

The author analyzes the Jewish community of Prague, which was reestablished after the war but experienced two major postwar waves of Jewish emigration. With the help of international support from the community, it has built institutions to meet the needs of its population. He concludes that our greatest challenge is to rebuild Jewish Prague on the world map of Jewish thinking.
