About
This is a unique tour with a litvak Ema Segal. Ema was born and raised in Vilnius in the 80s. This insider look is a 3,5-hour walking tour around the two Vilnius ghettos. We will follow the traces of Jewish life in the old Jewish Quarter where the Great Synagogue was built in 1633 and the house where great Gaon of Vilnius used to live and study. You will hear a story about the manifesto and the fight of Jewish partisans. We shall also walk into the Choral synagogue, and explore a very old mazzes-making machine there. I will show you a few buildings where Jewish printing houses, fliur mills, money exchanges, jewelry shops used to be. This tour will give you a good feeling what life was like in Vilnius before WWII and what role the Jewish population had in this city and beyond. I will also share my personal experience of growing up Jewish in the post-Soviet Lithuania. This private tour is suited for 4-5 people group. Which allows for an intimate two-way communication.

Regina Kopilevich, the best! A knowledgeable, personable guide
Oct 2019 • Solo
I can not say enough good things about Regina Kopilevich. She was my guide during my visit to Lithuania this past Oct. We visited Kupichok and Sedova,the shtetlach where my father and grandparents were born and spent a day at Jewish sites in Vilnius. She also found unknown family names and information searching my family names at the National Archives. One trip to Lithuania was not enough to explore my roots. I will use Regina again when I return to Lithuania in Spring 2020.
