Vilnius: The Jerusalem of Lithuania and the city of my family

Hosted By: Qesher

Lithuania became home to a Jewish community 700 years ago that suddenly was known as “Litvak.” Why? When? What did it mean then, and what does it mean today? In this talk, Daniel Gurevich will use his personal and 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 the principal hallmarks of a Jewish tour in Vilnius.

Host

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.
