|Join us on Monday February 22, 2021 for a virtual walking tour of Vilnius with local guide Daniel Gurevich (Daniel was our CSP guide when we visited Lithuania in July 2019). Vilnius, Lithuania’s largest city and capital, has been known by many names over its long and remarkable history, including, most famously for Jews, as Vilna. We will explore the story of Jewish life, thought and culture in Vilnius. We’ll discuss its renowned yeshivot (advanced religious schools) that developed a highly intellectual method of Talmudic study that still influences Jewish life and learning. We’ll also see how Vilnius had, by the early twentieth century, developed into a powerhouse of modern Jewish culture, literature and institutions.
