The Great Synagogue of Lithuania, a commission is formed to decide how to honor it

Lithuanian Jewish Community chairwoman Faina Kukliansky recommended, "“We cannot rebuild what is lost. We cannot return the Jewish people who have perished. We are obliged, however, to reclaim the Great Synagogue site, to bring it back to the Jewish Community and to the city as the focal point of that extraordinary Jewish life which existed in the Jerusalem of the North.”
