Re: Keidaner Association
Congratulations. I know you'll have a wonderful time. Be sure to look
in on the restored synagogue and bes-midrash buildings in Keidan, and
if you have the chance, look up Rimantas Zirgulas, who runs the
Kedainiai regional museum. Will you be working with a guide? If so, you
should contact Reginia Kopilevich in Vilnius; I can provide an email
and phone if you need one. Take good notes and lots of photos, and
report back when you return. Safe journey!
- Hi Harvey,
You might already know this, but when I go to
Lithuania I look at the "In Your Pocket" guide website
and buy a copy of the guide at the newstand when I get
there. Here is the site for Kaunas:
When we were in Kedainiai the year before last, we
stayed in Kaunas at the really great guesthouse
recommended by the "Kaunas in your pocket" guide. We
rented a car and drove all over Lithuania. Unlike our
first trip to Lithuania in 1996, the roads are now
full of Scandinavian tourists driving down the via
Baltica, filling up at the 24-hour gas station. You
could be in the U.K. or anywhere in Europe.
Travelling in Lithuania is not the difficult
experience it once was. Have a good trip!
