Vilnius: The Jerusalem of Lithuania
Hosted By: Qesher
Lithuania became home to a Jewish community seven hundred years ago that suddenly was known as “Litvak”. Why? When? What did it mean then and what does it mean today? This talk will use family stories to illustrate the past and present of Vilnius and Lithuania, explaining the main reasons why Vilnius is famous in the Jewish world, and showing you the principal hallmarks of a Jewish tour in Vilnius.
