In My Grandfather’s Footsteps: A Rabbi’s Notes From the Frontlines of Poland’s Jewish Revival
In 2013 Rabbi Avi Baumol was hired to serve as a Rabbi in Krakow, Poland. He expected to find a sad, dwindling community on the verge of extinction; but instead discovered a city in the midst of a miraculous Jewish revival. For 6 years Rabbi Baumol wrote articles about his extraordinary experiences, posting them to various media outlets. This book is a compendium of those notes plus other stories about the remarkable rebirth of Jewish life in Poland.
Rabbi Avi Baumol splits his time between Krakow, Poland and Efrat, Israel where his wife and five children reside. He is the author of The Poetry of Prayer; Torat Bitecha; Komentarze do Tory and the commentary on Psalms in the Israel Tanach.
