Activity of "Shamir" is aimed to
commemorating the memory of Latvian Jews. The most
significant project of us is Latvian Jewish Encyclopedia,
which gathers information about all the Jews, connected to
Latvia. It will be a memorial for the Latvian Jews, which do
not exist now. We have gathered already more than 1500
biographic and thematic entries and it is a half of the
Now we are looking for additional information
about Jews, born or anyway connected to Latvia and living
abroad. If you have information about such people, could you
pass the information to them?
All the information will be included into
the Latvian Jewish Encyclopedia.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
thank you in advance,
Religious community "Shamir"
