Voice of Poland - in Hebrew

Polish radio to commence daily Hebrew language broadcasts to Israel as part of 'reconciliation effort'

Polish Radio will begin broadcasts of Hebrew-language programs on a daily basis from Monday evening, as part of a new initiative to better relations between Poland and Israel, the station's Hebrew radio head told Ynetnews.


"The show will be available on 107.2FM to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the other coastal cities and 89.3 FM to the north of the country including Afula and Nazareth (from 21:30)," a press release said.


"This daily broadcast in Hebrew is one of many steps towards reconciliation towards Israel and the Jewish people that have been initiated by Poland in recent times," the statement added.


Speaking to Ynetnews from Warsaw, Michael Hermon, Head of Polish Radio's Hebrew Section, said the initiative aims "to broadcast reliable information from people who live here - Israelis, Polish Jews, and Jews who come here from all over the world."


"Thousands of Jews, especially from Israel, arrive in Poland every year. There's no doubt that Poland would like to change its image in Israel. We would like to continue to remember what happened here to the Jewish people, and at the same time, to look forward to the future," Hermon added.


The program would present daily news developments in Poland, and look at politics, society, and music, as well as Polish-Israeli relations, Hermon said. A special focus would be given to Jews living in Poland, assimilation, and anti-Semitism, he added.
