  1. I have the greatest respect for what Aaron Lansky has done with the National Yiddish Book Center. I am a proud owner of a signed copy of the book, Outwitting History which I purchased at the San Diego Jewish Book Fair and which the author autographed. I keep hoping for a miracle and that the worldwide Jewish community will come to the realization that there is still life in Europe and that the Jews here need support. I want people to remember that the place where I sit, the city of Vilna, was the Jerusalem of Lithuania. While it can never be as it was, it can be far better than it is now. All that is needed is not money but pressure put on the Lithuanian government to allow use of the Vilna Ghetto Library. It is a building which sits empty and falling apart thanks to a bunch of bureaucrats in Lithuania. The building and the Jewish community of Lithuania deserver far better than that.
