our idea

"Shtetl of Tsanz" is a historical programme carried out within the Nomina Rosae Foundation. The programme's aim is to popularize Jewish culture and religion among the citizens of Sącz and everyone interested as well as presentation of material and spiritual contribution of Jewish people in the development of Nowy Sącz. The Shtetl of Tsanz includes also history and traditions of other minorities inhabiting the Sądecka Land for centuries; the Lemko, the Roma and people of Protestant faith.

We present you the www.sadeckisztetl.com website, which is in the process of being created. You will find information about current programmes and events and with time also sources and information about Jewish history of Nowy Sącz and whole Sądecczyzna.
