An internecine dispute within Vilnius’ Jewish community took a new turn. Over the weekend, supporters of one of the contenders for the post of Lithuania’s chief rabbi were not allowed to attend services in the city’s only synagogue. The president of the community, Simonas Alperavicius, said the decision was made not to allow Sholom Ber Krinsky and his supporters into the synagogue in order to protect order and dignity in the shul.
