On the Establishment of the Yachad Organization

The Lithuanian Jewish Community would like to inform you that the Jewish organization Yachad is not connected with the Lithuanian Jewish Community, the Vilnius Jewish Religious Community of the Lithuanian Jewish Religious Association. On the organization’s webpage, they say they invited everyone who so desires, without regard to ethnicity, belief or place of residence, to become members and participate in Jewish religious life. The Lithuanian Jewish Community does not support this invitation and does not support the establishment of this organization because we believe it violates the principles of Judaism. This organization seeks to establish itself in the Choral Synagogue in Vilnius, although no permission has been given for this.

We would like to remind them the synagogue is the property of the Vilnius Religious Jewish Community.
