Just north of Pagiriai is Ramygala, our next stop, and also the home of some of our KAPLITS cousins. (The ending “galas” means “end,” as in “quiet end” or corner, and this is what we found in Ramygala, a quiet, peaceful, picturesque little town, slightly larger than Pagiriai (about 1700 people in 2005).

Here we saw the old synagogue (now a Cultural Center currently being rebuilt), the old Jewish cemetery (complete with stones), and a wonderful illustrated map of the former Jewish quarter drawn on the wall of a building, which I tried to capture in photographs but couldn’t do justice because it was too large. There is also a key to all the symbols used in the map.
