The 3K Virtual Tour of Jewish Lithuania: Kaunas, Kedainiai and Kalvarija

Hosted By: Qesher

Qesher continues their series of Virtual Tours in Lithuania. Get ready for the country’s second-largest city, Kaunas, and the towns of Kedainiai and Kalvarija. Kaunas (Kovno) was 60% Jewish at the end of the XIX century. Using videos, your guide, Daniel Gurevich, will guide you through its main Jewish heritage sights. After that, jump 50 kilometres north to Kedainiai, (Keidan), which was home to a very interesting Jewish community. Finally, the shtetl of Kalvarija (Kalvarye), is definitely a must-see in this journey.

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
