LITHUANIA TRIP Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, visited the Vilna Gaon’s grave in Vilnius on August 26 at the end of a four-day trip to Lithuania. In a summit with the leaders of Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia, Netanyahu urged them to support Israel in the European Union, and thanked Lithuania for preserving the memory of the Holocaust, during which 90 percent of its Jews were murdered. “I’m a Litvak [Lithuanian Jew] from both sides,” said Netanyahu, who is related to the Vilna Gaon.
