This resource highlights issues of Jewish religious law that arose in the Kovno Ghetto. Under Nazi occupation, the Jews of Lithuania, an ancient center of Jewish learning and scholarship, were herded into ghettos or taken to ravines and shot.
Amidst terror and persecution, and in the abnormal conditions of the ghetto, Jews could no longer adhere to their customs and mitzvot. This guide outlines how rabbis were called upon to answer numerous issues of Halacha and grapple with ethical dilemmas.
