The Litvaks: A Short History of the Jews in Lithuania

Dov Levin


Lithuania’s vibrant Jewish community has always been the outstanding cultural center for Jewish scholarship. Levin covers medieval times to the postwar period, highlighting periods of Jewish self-rule, the great yeshivot, the Gaon of Vilna, the Jewish nationalist movements, and other facets of Lithuanian Jewry. Winner of the 2002 Beautiful Book Award for its splendid design from the Israel Institute for Packaging and Product Logistics. “… a must for the educated reader seeking an accurate introduction to the topic.” [Marcos Silber, Studies in Contemporary Jewry, 2005]
