The ESJF is delighted to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement with the Lithuanian Jewish community (Lietuvos žydų bendruomenė). ESJF Chief Executive Philip Carmel signed the agreement with Faina Kukliansky, President of the Lithuanian Jewish community, during the Kyiv Jewish Forum on May 6th.
The agreement will allow for the surveying of around 100 Jewish cemeteries in Lithuania this year, as part of the EU co-funded mass drone survey project taking place across five European countries. Lithuania will be the last of these countries to be surveyed: surveys are largely completed in Moldova and Greece, and they are well underway in Slovakia and Ukraine. With the agreement in place, we will begin work with our Lithuanian partners immediately, and negotiate the details of the project. We are very much looking forward to getting started out on this joint venture!
