Twarda Street was once a centre of Jewish life in the Polish capital; in the 19th century there were no fewer than 18 synagogues on the street.
The Nozyk Synagogue is situated in the heart of the city. The synagogue is quickly becoming overshadowed by new building developments in historic Twarda Street.
The Nozyk synagogue has been given a much-needed restoration in recent years. It is the only synagogue left in Warsaw; it was privately owned before the war and used by the Germans as stables for the horses throughout the occupation. It now serves a community of about 400 families.
The Jewish cemetery in Warsaw is allocated just off the city centre. Despite being surrounded by tram lines, residential areas and shopping centres it remains one of the quietest places in central Warsaw.
Rabbi Mati Pawlak is the headmaster of The Lauder-Morasha School in Warsaw, which teaches Jewish pupils.
The Lauder-Morasha School in Warsaw educates children through three first stages of their education; from pre-school to secondary school.

The Tslil choir sings in a variety of Jewish languages, including Hebrew, Yiddish, Aramaic, and Ladino, which was spoken by Jews in Spain.
The choir is the only amateur Jewish choir in Poland. Though the music it performs is Jewish, the singers are not all Jewish.

Prozna Street is the only street of the former ghetto with untouched cobbled houses on both sides of the street. It is currently undergoing maintenance to bring back its former, pre-war, state.
