Lithuania's Jewish community comprised a small portion of world Jewry on the eve of the Holocaust, but has always held a unique place in Jewish history as the outstanding cultural center for Jewish scholarship. The 'Litvaks' have always been characterized by their rational approach to learning and by a highly organized community life. The volume describes the Jews in Lithuania from medieval times to the postwar period, when approximately 95% of the community was destroyed.

The book highlights the periods of Jewish self-rule, the great yeshivot, the Gaon of Vilna, the Jewish nationalist movements, and other facets of the great legacy of the vibrant Lithuanian Jewish community.
