The VILNIUS YIDDISH INSTITUTE is the first Yiddish center of higher learning to be established in post-Holocaust Eastern Europe. It is an integral part of the four-century-old Vilnius University, situated in the heart of the magnificently restored Old City, in a thriving new democracy. The Institute is dedicated to preserving the centuries-old heritage of Yiddish language and culture through teaching and scholarly research of the highest quality. Further, through intensive instruction by an outstanding international faculty the Institute aims to foster genuine literacy in Yiddish among new generations of students from Europe, the Americas, and beyond, and to train young new teachers and scholars in the field. Finally, inspired by its unique location in Vilna, the once fabled “Jerusalem of Lithuania,” the Institute cherishes the hope of nurturing new cultural contributions in Yiddish.
