This bulletin board describes services available.

 

Riga is Latvia’s capital and largest city, with about 800,000 inhabitants and
9-12,000 Jews, a large percentage of whom are Russians who fled the former Soviet Union. Aptly called Little Paris at the turn of the century, Riga’s
European beauty has been renewed in the post Soviet era with the
restoration and renovation of its wonderful buildings.

The struggles of today’s Jewish Latvia are largely settlement and economic issues. Many of Latvia's Jews need food, medical attention, skills, jobs and education in Judaism - which could not be practiced in the Soviet Union.

These needs are met through organizations that continue to exist, in good
part, through outside support from people like us. See Support Jewish Latvia.
