At the end of summer, the Limmud Baltics Conference took place in Estonia with over 200 participants from the Baltic states as well as the USA, Germany, Israel, France, and other countries. The conference, dedicated to Jewish culture, history and current topics in the community, has become an annual tradition.
This year, with support from the Uniting History Foundation, participants of the conference had the opportunity to hear a lecture by museum educator of the Žanis Lipke Memorial Museum Maija Meiere-Oša on the saviors of Jews in Liepāja, as well as a lecture by PR director of the charity foundation Нужна помощь Nadezhda Yankelevich, providing insight into how local associations and communities can participate in solving various social issues.
Executive director of the Foundation Elīna Škļara had the opportunity to take part in a roundtable discussion on solving social issues on various levels.
The Foundation expresses its gratitude to the organizers of the event and to all participants for the valuable and educational weekend and for the opportunity to contribute to the creation of the conference by offering lectures and discussions on historical and socially relevant matters.
