The way of life of Lithuanian Jewry, the rhythm of life at home
and in the market place, in things sacred and profane, was Jewish
through and through
(Kariv, Avraham. Lithuania, Land of My Birth, p. 12, translated from the
Hebrew by I.M. Lask and Gertrude Hirschler, New York, 1967.)
Lithuanian Jewry was spread out over the country in some two hundred shtetls and villages. There was virtually no urban center nor village that did not have a Jewish settlement, in some cases only a few families.
The towns in the vicinity of Vilna [Vilnius] that were annexed to Lithuania do not appear on the map.
