The situation of Polish jews is a special and specific one. Many Polish jews have a mixed heritage with for instance a Roman-Catholic father and a Polish jewish mother. These people have mixed cultures, feelings, loyalties and thus cultural identities. From one side they discovered their own Jewish identity, Jewish culture, Jewish traditions, the jewish religion and the history of Judaism in Poland. Many of them have a certain interest in Yiddish and Modern Hebrew (Ivriet) the language of Israel.
From the other side they feel deeply connected to Poland, the Polish language, Polish literature, Polish poetry, the Polish society, Polish history and their Polish Roman-Catholic family and friends. Not everbody is tolerant towards their Polish-Jewish identity, but they also witness and experience positive attitudes of Polish Roman-Catholics, some Roman-Catholic priests, Polish teachers and some Polish artists and journalists who are interested in the revival of Polish Judaism after 1989.
