Vilna Shul Travels

Last June, over a dozen Vilna patrons visited Vilnius, Kaunas, Warsaw, and Krakow. This intimate group was led by Jacek Nowakowski, Senior Curator, National Institute for Holocaust Documentation at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. They explored the historic “Jerusalem of Lithuania” – Vilnius – with a side visit to the Old City of Kaunas, experienced Warsaw's new POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, attended Krakow’s annual Jewish Culture Festival, and had a private meeting with the Chief Rabbi of Poland, Rabbi Michael Schudrich!

Check out Deborah Feinstein's blog about the trip here!

What's next? 

The Vilna will be visiting Washington, DC in March/April 2020 for an exclusive look at Jewish DC.
