the cemetery is a section in the gentile cemetery, it was quite an effort to find
Tell me about it. I was in Vilna and decided to make a run for Dvinsk before my outbound flight, but for the life of me I couldn't find it. I drove back to the shul and someone there drew a map for me, I came back and it didn't make sense and was about to give up. Until I entered the Christian cemetery and paid a worker to guide me to the right place. Spent ten minutes then raced back to Vilna with a brief stop by police for speeding.

had a cute story driving back from dvinsk to to vilna as well.
i was stopped for speeding, and i wasnt sure if i was in latvia or lithuania. i knew i was right near the border, either a minute before or a minute after. i asked the cop if i was still in latvia or i had already crossed into lithuania. as soon as he said latvia, i slammed the gas, and less than a minute later i was in lithuania. :)

Dear Friend,
 
Rabbi Sholom Krinsky would like to advise that the Bagel Shop in Vilnius (Beigelių krautuvėlė), located on Pylimo Street 4, is no longer certified as kosher.

All the best,
Sarah Shapiro

Did a tour of Kaunas and Vilna with William at https://jerulita.lt/. He was very good- knows all the kevarim, etc.

That's so funny, he was my tour guide when I went with my yeshiva!
He was awesome, was telling us how he was the tour guide for rav Moshe Shapiro
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.
