Lithuanian Jewry Section by Adv. Joseph A.Melamed
In the sections “Lithuanian Jewry” - including "Independent Lithuania" and "Soviet Lithuania" written by Adv. Joseph A.Melamed - readers will be able to get a fuller picture of the events and milestones in the history of Lithuanian Jewry, from inception to destruction. It contains extensive information about this magnificent community and its network of institutions, political movements, its renowned yeshivot and study centers, the hundreds of multilingual Jewish schools and teachers’ seminars, the diverse range of theaters and drama studios, libraries, sports associations and others. Essentially, this is an in-depth portrait of a prolific Jewish community that has all but ceased to exist, spanning seven centuries of activity which ended tragically in the inferno of the Holocaust.
