The VYI staff paid a home visit to Professor Meir Shub, the founder of late and post-Soviet-period Judaic Studies at Vilnius University. Prior to the gaining of Lithuanian independence in 1991, with Soviet tanks still amassed in Vilnius, Professor Shub began to build the program. Subsequently, he became a founding faculty member of the Vilnius Yiddish Institute, which emerged from these early efforts. Despite his ill health and advanced age, Prof. Shub is a constant adviser and frequent visitor at the Institute, and his long, courageous, and steadfast support is ever present in our minds and hearts. The Jewish world celebrates Prof. Shub’s 82nd birthday this year, and the VYI joins his many former students, friends, and admirers near and far in wishing him health, long life, and continued creativity.
