Cy has made contact with some educational officals in hopes of having the cemetery integrated into the local high-school curriculum. Our goal is to have an educational project established to teach about the history of both Lithuanian Jewry and the Holocaust. This would culminate in an annual ceremony held at the Jewish Cemetery where an award would be given for an essay written by a local student that touches on some aspect of the pre-war Lithuanian Jewish Community.
The goal here would be two-fold, to preserve the heritage of the local Jewish Community of Skapiskis and give a tangible stake to the residents of Skapiskis in preserving and maintaining the cemetery. This would one step in guaranteeing the sustainability of the Skapiskis Jewish Cemetery for future generations.
