The classic Lithuanian Jew (Litvak) is known in folklore for a love of education, no-nonsense straight-talk and certain sardonic wit. Jews were settled in Vilna, as the capital was and still is known in Jewish culture from around the time of its founding in 1323.

By the 18th century Vilna had become the world capital of traditional religious (Talmudic) learning, often referred to as the Jerusalem of Lithuania, or Jerusalem of the North. Towering over the many great Jewish figures the city has produced, is Gaon of Vilna.

Today a small community of 5,000 or so Litvaks makes bold efforts to maintain its heritage.

My guide, Tomas, was very knowledgeable, and showed me so many Jewish sites in Vilnius. Many would have been difficult to get to by public transportation. I feel that I was able to make the most of my short stay in Vilnius during this tour.

This tour was worth every penny. My guide Justina was extremely intelligent, well-informed and impassioned. We had many fascinating discussions. I learned a great deal from her and was moved by the tour. She couldn't have been better.

We really enjoyed this tour although it probably primarily has appeal to those who already have an interest in Jewish history or have family ties to Vilnius. What we most appreciated is that the guide pointed out spots, landmarks and memorials that we certainly would have either missed or not known what to make of had we not had a guide.
