The calendar for 5781 features Jewish symbols, most of which are intended for worshiping God and connected with holidays and religion. There were hundreds of synagogues formerly operating in Lithuania where Torah was read daily, worshipers wore the tallit on their shoulders and all men covered their heads with a kipa. There was a thriving Jewish community and during Hanukkah they lit the nine-armed candelabrum the hanukiya, and the children played by spinning the dreydl. Nowadays these symbols and items are more to be found as museum exhibits than as part of Jewish daily lives.
Text about symbols is written by dr. Aistė Niunkaitė Račiūnienė, idea and design of the calendar – JUDVI. Partners of the calendar: Vilnius Gaon Jewish History Museum and Aušra Museum in Šiauliai.
