Rav, Rabbi, Rebbe. Rabbis in Poland

The book is a catalogue of an exhibition which showed religious objects, paintings, old prints and photographs of rabbis, all from the collections of the Jewish Historical Institute. There are single portraits, of married couples or with families, of those who survived the Holocaust thanks to the fact that they had emigrated to Palestine between 1936 and 1939. You can familiarize yourself with the iconography of the rabbis, observe the changes, and see what remained constant. Dominant on the exhibition images of rabbis refer to the depth of their spiritual heritage, which for centuries had an influence on religious and cultural character of Poland.
