A Brief History of Jewish Art
Bezalel and Ancient Israel, Diaspora, "Golden Age" in Lithuania, Renaissance of Jewish Art, Holocaust and modern times
J ewish contributions to mankind are enormous, especially from a cultural point of view. They gave us a concept of G-d [monotheism] and clear-cut standards of law [ten commandments]. Although these values are collectively understood as the Judeo-Christian ethic , the scope of their influence extends far beyond Christians and Jews.
Because Hebrew was weak on abstractions, Biblical verbiage was set in concrete terms, with numerous personifications. Bezalel personified art. The name means "standing in the shadow of G-d." According to Exodus 31:1-11, G-d gave him the intelligence, wisdom and skill "to create marvelous articles." Bezalel became an architect, sculptor and designer of holy garments. He was the first Jewish artist on record, known for making the Tabernacle that contained the Ark of the Covenant. [Boris Schatz, a sculptor from Lithuania, came to Jerusalem in 1903 and founded the

82. Wilno Currently The Capital City Of Lithuania.
/history. Wilno is the capital of the present day lithuania and one of the country s oldest cities....... Wilno was granted the right of Magdeburg. Short
In 1387 Aukstaitija (the Highlands of Lithuania) was Christianized. Wilno was granted the right of Magdeburg. Short Description/History Wilno is the capital of the present day Lithuania and one of the country's oldest cities. It stretches along both banks of the fast flowing Neris River, and is set among hills pine forests. Wilno(Vilnius) is very old city. The honour for founding Wilno is justly given to Gediminas (Lithuanian Duke) in 1323. Having declared Wilno his "Royal Town", Gediminas created the conditions for its subsequent growth as well as the political, economical and cultural center of Lithuania. Following the craftsmen in other European towns at the end of the 15th century, Wilno craftsmen began to join together by professions into guilds. Many Catholic churches and monasteries appeared in the town. Stone buildings sprang up inside the Lower Castle. The new Cathedral was among them. Crafts and trade continued to develop in the 16th century. Many beautiful new buildings in the late Gothic and Renaissance style appeared in the town. The most significant event in the cultural life of 16th century Lithuania was the founding of the Wilno Academy in 1579, which was endowed with the rights and privileges of a university. In 1795 Wilno became the center of a new gubernia consisting of the lands annexed to the Russian Empire. A number of new Classical style buildings were built, including the Cathedral, which had been reconstructed at the end of the 18th century, a new town hall, and the Governor-General's Palace. In 1860, a railway line which at that time was the first in Lithuania, crossed Wilno and connected the town with St. Petersburg, Russia and Warsaw, Poland.

    Baha'i History in Lithuania
    click here for Baha'i History - basic background
    Written by Helen Smith The first Baha'i to visit Lithuania was Martha Root in the spring of 1927. She met some Esperantists at her hotel in Kaunas, but was unable to do much becauce of local circumstances. She came again to Kaunas in the summer of 1934 for the National Esperanto Conference, and again in October 1935. On these two occations she was much more succesfull and her visit resulted in articles appearing in local newspapers, as well as a mention of the Baha'i Faith in the Lithuania Encyclopedia (Kaunas 1934). Also in 1935, Matas Salcius wrote about the Baha'i Faith in his book "Sveciuose Pas 40 Tautu" ("Visiting 49 Nations"). Baha'is are recorded as living in two places prior to World War II, Radviliskis and Joniskis. The names of the first two Baha'is were Juozas Petrulis and Andrius Borkauskas. No trace of this former community remains. In the Ten Year Crusade (q.v., 1953 - 63), Lithuania was made the responsibility of the National Spiritual Assembly of Germany and Austria. In 1974, this responsibility was transferred to the Baha'is of Sweden.

    Lithuania has a moderate climate, with cool summers and mild winters. Annual precipitation ranges from 559 to 864 mm. The principal river is the Nemunas.
    In spite of nearly half a century of Soviet occupation and oppression, many religions survived in Lithuania, including Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Russian Orthodox, Jewish, and Moslem.
    Under strict guidelines imposed by a national Currency Board, the amount of currency in circulation is tied to reserves of Lietuvos Bankas (Bank of Lithuania). Having achieved monetary stability, the Lithuanian government is committed to a gradual withdrawal from this system, leading to an official peg to the euro sometime in early 2002.
    Czarist rule, Nazi occupation fueled desire for democracy Lithuanians descended from Baltic tribes whose roots can be traced to the Paleolithic Period in the 11th Millennium B.C.. Ancient Lithuanians actively traded with the Romans, mostly in amber dug from mines in the eastern part of the region.
    In the 13th Century, the Lithuanian people were united under Grand Duke Mindaugas, a monarch whose realm eventually extended as far north as the Urals and as far south as the Black Sea.

    Friday, 04 June, 2004 Towards an expanded EU History of resistance by Thijs Papot, 25 August 2003 Lithuania is a country of flags and equestrian statues cast in bronze. These icons from a glorious past symbolise the distinctive tenacity of this small nation. Without this stubbornness, the southernmost of the three Baltic States would have been gobbled up by another country long ago. In 1991, Lithuania became the first Baltic state to fight its way to independence from the Soviet Union. The experience of Soviet repression strongly motivated Lithuania to join the European Union. Not so much because Lithuanians would like to belong to a larger political entity, but rather because they view EU membership as a way to preserve their recently won independence. Although equal in size to Benelux, Lithuania won't be playing a leading role in the 25-member Union. With a population of just 3.6 million, the Baltic state is one of Europe's smaller nations. Yet, Lithuania boasts a rich history, a fact often forgotten in the rest of the continent. In the 14th century, the grand duchy ranked among the European superpowers, stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea and comprising large parts of what is now Russia, Belarus, Poland and Ukraine. Expansionist Russian
    In 1989, French scientists calculated that Europe's exact geographic centre – measured from the Urals to the Atlantic – is located some 24km north of the capital Vilnius. The finding gave a moral boost to the much-heard assertion that Lithuania is in fact a Central European country and therefore belongs to the West just as much as, say, Scandinavia.

    Presidential Palace History
    Photo by Dþoja Gunda Barysaitë The years of the history of the Palace can be counted since the issuance of the edict by Grand Duke Jogaila on 17 February 1387. After Lithuania converted to Christianity in 1387, Grand Duke Jogaila founded the Vilnius Diocese and donated to it a plot of land next to " Goshtautas' park on the edge of the city of Vilnius". It indicates that the land of the Bishop must have been included into the territory of the present Palace complex. The first Bishop of Vilnius, Andrius Vasila (1388-1398), built a palace that was decorated, rebuilt and expanded by its successive hosts. Documents on the Bishop Palace testify that in 1536-1555, during the days of Bishop Paulius Olshenishkis who was one of the most wealthy bishops, the Palace was the next most impressive edifice after the Royal Castle. In the 16th century, the Palace was surrounded by a huge park which surpassed even the renown in Central Europe parks of the Radziwills in plants and equipment. The last to live in the Palace was Bishop Masalskis (1730-1762). Upon his order the Palace complex was partially reconstructed by the Lithuanian architect Stuoka-Gucevichius.
