Traditional Wigilia 2019

Christmas is the most special time of year, especially for Polish people. We cherish our Christmas traditions of breaking oplatek, and singing of Polish Christmas Carols, Koledy. Every year we gather as a Polish community, families, friends, neighbors, and acquaintances who may even turn into life long friends, while celebrating our wonderful Christmas eve dinner.

Polish Christmas Eve Dinner is traditionally a meatless meal which traditionally begins with the opening prayer, then the breaking of oplatek which are wafers that we share with each other as we share well wishes for the new year and thank each other for all the wonderful things we received in the old year. The dinner typically consists of creamy mushroom soup or red beet borscht with mushroom dumplings, pierogi, fish, sour kraut, pickled herring, and many other foods but this covers some of the basics for the meal. For dessert, our favorite part! We usually have Makowiec – poppyseed roll, sernik – cheesecake, and piernik – gingerbread loaf.

We hope that you can join us for this wonderful Traditional Wigilia 2019 ! And we wish you all the best this holiday season from our family to yours!

We suggest you make reservations early since we have only a limited number of seats available.

Babka (singular) – “babki” (plural) are sweet yeast cakes

Polish Easter would not be complete without Easter cake (babka): a tall, round, 10-yolk sweet yeast cake with a hole in the middle that can be compared to the American election cake.

Nie bój się kochać

Nie bój się kochać

Nie bój się kochać – Jan Twardowski

Polsko Kanadyjskie Towazystwo Teatralne – Salon Poezji, Muzyki i Teatru w przedstawieniu teatralno muzycznym granym na wielu scenach świata

“Trójka wędrowców szła przez te wszystkie krajobrazy i każdy z nich niósł inne emocje, które znajdujemy w wierszach poety – od wielkiego smutku do radości. Przy przepięknej muzyce Jerzego Boskiego i Dariusza Króla zanurzenie się w świecie poezji było oczyszczeniem dla nas wszystkich. W Polsce odbywały się wieczory poezji ks. Jana Twardowskiego, lecz były one oparte wyłącznie na jego wierszach. Uznałam, że wzbogacanie poezji wyobraźnią muzyczną i obrazem cudownej polskiej przyrody, tak drogiej, szczególnie dla nas, emigrantów – jest szalenie ważne.” – Maria Nowotarska fragment z książki Beaty Gołembiowskiej “Teatr bez granic”

Kazimierz Braun pisał: “Jego poezja jest niezwykle prosta i bezpośrednia, a zarazem ufundowana na autora niezłomnej wierze, bezwarunkowej nadziei i wszechogarniającej miłości. Ks. Twardowski ośmiela nas i zachęca abyśmy nie bali się kochać Boga, Bliźnich, piękna, a także dobrego, mądrego i pięknego teatru. Przedstawienie “Nie Bój się Kochać” jest wyjątkową okazją poznania wyjątkowej poezji i przeżycia szczególnych wzruszeń teatralnych”.

Polish Minister CLE Visit and Trail of Hope Exhibit

Polish Minister Anna Maria Anders Cleveland Visit

And the Trail of Hope Exhibit

Trail of Hope Exhibit

The Republic of Poland’s Secretary of State will visit Cleveland, Ohio to commemorate her father through the traveling Trail of Hope Exhibit and honor a local survivor who served under her father’s fabled Army.  Minister Anna Maria Anders is the daughter of Polish WWII General Wladyslaw Anders, whose Army’s epic journey across three continents is chronicled in Norman Davies best-selling book, The Trail of Hope. The Polish Government has created a mobile exhibit featuring 15 stations, and this exhibit will be on display at the Polish American Cultural Center in Cleveland’s Slavic Village from September 19 – 30.  A reception will be held at the Cultural Center on Saturday evening, September 22.

Cleveland is just the 2nd American city to host the Trail of Hope Exhibit, which was made possible from an invitation that a Cleveland author received to the Polish Embassy in May to commemorate Poland’s Constitution Day. Cuyahoga Community College Professor Andrew Bajda received an invitation after Poland’s Ambassador to the USA, Piotr Wilczek, learned of his book, Captured in Liberation. Bajda’s book colorfully describes his father’s quest to join Anders Army as a teen living in Poland during WWII, a journey which took him across the vast European continent, including capture and escape from a POW camp.  During the reception, Bajda and his father Marian were invited for a private meeting with the Ambassador. Upon learning more of the story and its impact on the local Polish community, Wilczek phoned Minister Anders to connect her with Bajda and plant the seed for the Trail of Hope Exhibit’s Cleveland appearance.

Cleveland Itinerary for Minister Anders

Saturday, September 22:

2:00 PM – Event with Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur

7:00 PM -  An evening reception (125 seating) at the Polish American Cultural Center in Cleveland’s Slavic Village.  The reception will honor the Anders Army and local surviving members of the Second Corps.  Congresswoman Kaptur will join us, but this will be promoted as a celebration, not a political event. Adjoining the Reception Hall is a local Polish museum that will display the Trail of Hope exhibit from September 19 – September 30.

Sunday, September 23:

10 AM – Polish Mass at the Shrine Church of St. Stanislaus in Cleveland’s Slavic Village. I believe this to be Cleveland’s most beautiful church and was visited by Pope John Paul II when he came to Cleveland.

Noon –  Lunch at the Polish American Cultural Center in Cleveland’s Slavic Village.
