Virtual Jewish Vilnius tour

Vilnius city has many faces, and on this Virtual Jewish Vilnius tour, our guides will tell you about its prominent Jewish community. Jews lived in Vilnius since the early 14th century and played an essential role in making the city what it is today, at some point jews made up 40% of the population.

As it is a “new-normal” virtual tour, it will be on Zoom and will be based on the recorded materials from our tours and Youtube platform. So what you should expect to see and learn:

  • How did the word Litvak evolve?
  • Three reasons why Vilna is known in the Jewish world.
  • Main hallmarks of a Jewish tour in Vilna. 

The tour will be conducted in Hebrew at 18.00 Israel time
