Mina Nath came home

Coming home… it is the title of exhibition, presenting in Sztyler’s Gallery in Tarnów. Pictures by Mina Nath came from Wenezuela and USA. Mina’s family want to sell all paintings as one collection and give money for renovation of Jewish Cemetery in Tarnów. See more on: http://minasartformemory.weebly.com/. On this website you can also read Minas’s history of life. 
The special organizer of event was Gerald Vineberg with his wife, Marcia, from Canada. During the opening ceremonies we also could meet Silvia Nath – Mina’s daughter with her husband Martin, which came from Wenezuela. Barbara Kupšowska (de domo Śmietana) made evening even better with her beautiful voice.

Shabbat Service on Galicianer Shtetl is canceled

Dear Friends,
Please be advised that we have decided to cancel the Shabbat Service & Kosher Meal on June 16, 2017 in Tarnow, that was planned to be a part of the Opening Ceremonies of the Mina’s exhibition which is part of Jewish Memory Days in Tarnów.
Despite our numerous request for those attending the Days of Remembrance Ceremonies, June 16 – 19, 2017 in Tarnow to advise us if a Kosher Meal was required, we have yet to receive any requests.
The Opening Ceremonies will go on as planned but with Hor D’oeuvres & Wine Tasting, starting at 18:00 at the „Galeria Sztyler, Tarnow, Tertila Passage”. Please contact us if you need directions.
The Exhibition of the „Mina Collection” will still take place & I am very pleased to advise that Silvia Nath (Mina’s daughter) will be in attendance.
See you in Tarnow!
