A Community (or Kehilla) is the primary organization of each Jewish community forming part of the Union of Jewish Religious Communities in the Republic of Poland. Together with its branch in Lublin, the Jewish Religious Community in Warsaw is the largest of the Union’s Kehillot. The Act of February 20, 1997 on the Relationship of the State and the Jewish Religious Communities in the Republic of Poland (Journal of Laws No. 41, item 251) constitutes the legal basis for the Community’s operation.
