The only synagogue in Vilnius has been closed since last week as a result of an internecine dispute. The synagogue in the Lithuanian capital, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last September, was closed by Simonas Alperavicius, the community president, because of a dispute over the post of chief rabbi of Lithuania’s small Jewish community.
