UPDATE: VYI was abruptly closed down by its director Dr. S. Liekis in 2019. There is widespread hope the institute’s rich library, donated by hundreds of generous donors over many years, will rapidly be transferred to one of the functioning Judaica libraries in Vilnius, hopefully the National Library where local and international readers alike can access these materials. Updates here.
