A FestivALT performance conceived by Michael Rubenfeld and co-created with Jason Francisco and Magda Rubenfeld Koralewska. Performed by Michael Rubenfeld and Adam Schorin.

Lucky Jew takes a common object of Polish folk culture and turns it on its head. The term “Lucky Jews” refers to figurines or paintings of Jews with gold coins that are sometimes sold as good luck charms. For some, they also serve as remembrances of Poland’s pre-war Jewish communities. For many people, they are simply anti-Semitic caricatures. Lucky Jew engages with the cultural complications of these objects by bringing a real-live Lucky Jew into public spaces of Krakow, where he attempts to sell images of himself for good luck.

Livestreamed from Krakow, Poland, by FestivALT.
