Purim In Lithuania


This year’s Purim in Vilnius, Lithuania, will long be remembered by the city’s Jewish community.

Six hundred Jews, from Vilnius and neighboring Kaunas, were treated to a Purim extravaganza at the Forum Palace concert hall. The megillah reading by Rabbi Sholom B. Krinsky, Chabad representative to Lithuania, was followed by musical performances by Chabad’s very own students. The crowd enjoyed one belly laugh after another as Israeli comedian Y. Levinzon, originally from Odessa, entertained.

Sponsored by Chabad, the event made the Purim holiday come to life. “People looked forward to this with so much anticipation, and they were grateful for the opportunity to participate in the holiday,” says Rabbi Krinsky.
