I visited the Vilnius Jewish Public Library where the WJC, the World Jewish Congress, were running a seminar “Pearls of Yiddish Culture” over three days. 26 top educators from Israeli schools, universities and other institutions came to study Yiddish culture, language and literature. Study tours of the Jewish sites of Vilnius were part of the program. This seminar was a result of the cooperation between the WJC and Shai Bar Ilan Jewish roots travel agency affiliated with Bar Ilan University (Israel).
I also met Yitzchak Averbuch and his assistant Rosita Rybokaite, who co-ordinate these seminars for the WJC.
