Jewish community leader: Jews feel well in Lithuania

“Look at it from the positive point of view – an official of the (US President Barack) Obama administration is coming, and we have no major things to complain or moan about,” Kukliansky said in an interview published in Kauno Diena daily on Thursday.

“If anti-Semitism does exist in Lithuania, we do not have to deal with it in government institutions or on the streets. This is not something we face on a daily basis. We cannot complain, quite on the contrary – we can be happy that we feel very comfortable in Lithuania, as compared to other European countries,” she added.

In Kukliansky’s words, anti-Semitism in Lithuania exists on the level of stereotypes, which can be overcome by way of education and mutual communication.
