In the late 19th century, faced with growing repression, many Eastern European Jews sought freedom in North America. During that exodus, a core of immigrants from neighboring rural villages, or shtetls, in Lithuania made their way to Burlington, Vt., a bustling lumber port surrounded by countryside that reminded them of home. "Little Jerusalem" became a thriving, traditional Jewish community in Burlinton's Old North End from the late 1800s until World War II, and vestiges of its heritage still remain today.
Vermont Public Television's "Little Jerusalem" captures the rich history of this community in archival images and interviews with historians and descendants of the original settlers.
