VILNIUS - It was the darling of Lithuania. “The cradle of Jewish culture,” as depicted by the Mayor of Vilnius, Mr. Remigijus Simasius at an auspicious occasion. It was an opportunity for the mayor to panhandle the importance he attached to the Jewish heritage of Vilnius.

On the surface, Mayor Remigijus Simasius appreciates that Jewish culture is somewhat intrinsic to Vilnius. Its origins date back hundred of years. It was once a thriving city of Torah scholars, Talmudic enthusiasts who walked with the words of Torah on their lips. 

Towards the beginning of the twentieth century, driven by poverty and pogroms, many Jews sought refuge in destinations such as South Africa. It offered the likes of businessman Samuel Marks, and families of Nobel prize winner Aron Klug, Sol Kerzer, Mendel Kaplan, Raymond Ackerman, Donald Gordon, Helen Suzman, Nadine Gordimer, Johnny Clegg, Ali Bacher, Sydney Nomis, Wilf Rosenberg, Shaun Tomson and Joel Stransky, new opportunities.

During World War II, virtually the entire Mir Yeshiva miraculously escaped Lithuania with the assistance of the Japanese consul in Kovna, Sempo Sugihara. See Escape to Shanghai

For many former Lithuanian’s, although tragedy, poverty and political turmoil had resulted in a relocation, they found solace in their Lithuanian ancestry. For that reason the Jewish community in South African, of which 90% trace their roots back to Lithuania, constitutes a close knit, warm and hospitable ensemble who epitomize Lithuanian Jewish culture at its best.

Surprisingly, the nostalgic memories of what was once Lithuania, have taken a turn.  At the centre of this change, is a decision by the Lithuanian government, to construct a conference centre on the grounds of the old cemetery in Shnipishok, Vilnius.

The proposed construction is a clear desecration of the Jewish cemetery. An expert panel has determined that any building or use of the cemetery, outside the framework of its use as a cemetery, is illegal. An auspicious Jewish court, that of Rabbi Nissim Karelitz Z”L’s Beis Din has already ruled that construction and use of the conference centre is forbidden. The Honorable Court’s decision was also affirmed by leading halachic expert in Jewish Law, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky. Additionally, legal experts point to the the plan’s violation of the Hague Convention and EU Charter of Human Rights.

The Shnipishok resting place for well over 50,000 Jews is over 500 years old and includes some of the luminaries of the Vilna Gaon’s family, the Chayei Adam, the Ber Hagaola and many others. See

Tragically, a dark cloud hangs over the once vibrant City of Vilnius, where Jewish lives and culture thrived. Prominent Rabbis from across the globe have rallied to intervene. An initiative spearheaded by the de facto guardian of the cemetery, Mr. Dov Fried (see, hopes to protect the cemetery and the threatening desecration.

“Is it not enough that the Nazis tried to exterminate the Jews at Auschwitz?” Yehuda Goldstein, an American whose family immigrated to the U.S. from Lithuania, asks.

Many Jews in communities from across the globe are questioning, whether Vilnius will be yet another Auschwitz. This time with a slightly different twist: anti-semitism perpetrated beyond the grave.

Several things change from when we are students, to when we join the workforce. One of the things that don’t change though, is our attitude towards assessment. Employees in an organization might feel just as bored at the prospect of an assessment, as a student would. In fact, employees are even more reluctant to be part of assessments than students are, as they have several other responsibilities as well. Most employees feel stressed about professional and other workplace assessments, and they aren’t really interested in participating.

Still, assessments are an important part of professional life. Organizations have material, ideas, and training that they need to pass on to the employees. They are always striving to find better ways to help their employees become more receptive and retain most of the information they are provided.

This is a problem when everything else is in order. It's an even bigger problem when most employees are exercising social distancing, and can’t be crammed into a conference room together.

Collaborative Learning and Social Distancing

It's hard getting individual employees to be excited about training and assessments, or to increase their level of interest. But the results are much better when organizations move towards collaborative learning. It resolves many of the inherent problems there are with workplace learning: Memorization challenges (increase as we grow up), attention span shortens when there is too much information to absorb, and employees find it hard to focus with other workplace responsibilities on their mind.

Collaborative learning exercises counter these challenges through team building, collaborative spirit, competition, and group rewards. It also increases bonding within team members. It’s more fun, exciting, and helps employees dive deeper into the experience than they would have if they were trained and assessed individually.

Collaborative learning is a potent tool in the hands of organizations and institutions, and it helps them improve the learning experience of their employees and students. Except, it’s taken away from their hands because of the pandemic and social distancing.

But what if we could offer you something even better?

Gamifying Collaborative Learning

Yes. Gamifying the learning experience of your employees and corporate teams can help you take your collaborative learning experience to a whole new level (gaming pun intended!). And the best part, social distancing can’t stop you.

If you have conducted even a few Zoom meetings or tried to keep up with your training calendar with the help of conventional e-learning platforms and other conferencing solutions, you know how boring it can be. Participants are dozing off, and it’s a+ mess trying to get everyone to work together collaboratively. It’s neither fun nor productive, and gamifiying this experience can give you both.

We have created a powerful, customizable, and unique platform where team training is conducted through multiplayer gaming. It has allowed us to stimulate the ultimate learning experience. It’s fun, collaborative, increases participation willingness substantially, and helps almost all participants retain most of the conveyed material and information.

Team managers can invoke team spirit in more ingenious and fun ways and efficiently measure the learning performance of their team members. Our platform has several training programs created by a variety of professionals, but it can also adapt to other training contents. So if you have your own training manuals and materials that you want to convey to your employees, we can embed that into our games.


Gamification isn't merely a novel idea; there are considerable figures to back up its effectiveness. Like the fact that the average game player is over 38 years old, which sits neatly around the median age of your workforce. And there are about 2.7 billion active gamers worldwide, so the chances are that a hefty portion of your workforce already plays video games. This has resulted in 79% of employees gaining motivation and purpose in the workplace; 90% of employees feeling more productive, and 83% of employees feel more motivated to participate when training is gamified.

So if you are looking to instill and facilitate collaborative learning in your workforce, despite social distancing, Gamifying your trainings with us is an option worth considering. With 11+ years of experience, Pixelhunters has a proven record of successful gamification solutions and platform developments. Contact us!



Several independent media sources confirmed that Turto Bankas, a government owned Lithuanian property bank has been blacklisted in the international financial industry.

The source of the move is the banks decision to build a conference center on a Jewish cemetery in Vilnius, Lithuania.

The proposal for the conference center has been on the back burner for years, but was recently approved in an official capacity by the Lithuanian government and Turto Bankas.

The development is highly controversial and has been vehemently opposed by the White House, U.S. Senators and Congressmen, spiritual leaders from across the globe and the world Jewish community.

The Vilnius Jewish community also has expressed its strongest opposition to the plan, which an Israeli court has declared illegal, earlier this year.

Major financial institutions will avoid doing business and conducting trades with Turto Bankas based on its questionable ethics.  

Jared Copperfield who manages a private equity firm in London said, “It’s not that financial institutions will necessarily disagree with Turto’s decision. However, the property bank’s decision to green light the development means that there are going to be consequences. It’s called repetitional risk and financial institutions avoid that like the plague.”

Other traders indicated that there has been no official notice to blacklist the bank. Peter Jenkins, a dealmaker in London said that the move to blacklist Turto Bankas is officially unofficial, meaning that there are not going to be any records to show the move to ostracize the bank. Institutions are just going to be reluctant to do business with Turto. In the current go slow mood of the Covid-19 pandemic, the blacklisting is unlikely to materially effect the bank. 

Economists say that a bigger problem may be the execution of economic sanctions against Lithuania. A free from racist or antisemitic certificate is something which every compliance department is scrambling for, in the current political environment. In a perfect world, Lithuania or Turto Bankas would not be an exception.

NEW YORK - The world Jewish community including the Vilnius Jewish community has responded with shock, anger and horror at the Lithuanian government’s decision to develop a conference center on the grounds of a 500-year old cemetery. The Jewish cemetery located in Piramont (Shnipishok), Vilnius, Lithuania is the same cemetery where the famous Torah scholar, the ‘Vilna Gaon’ was buried. 

Media reports indicate that the government and Turto Bankas acted illegally to secure paperwork so that they could green light the initiative.

In 2005, the country as a newly established sovereign state authorized the desecration of a 500-year old Jewish cemetery (Piramont in Shnipishok) in Vilnius, where two apartment blocks were constructed on the site. 

In 2008, the U.S House of Representatives passed a resolution condemning the Republic of Lithuania’s government for the desecration and human rights violation.

Despite world outrage at Lithuania’s antisemitic action, Lithuanian officials recently announced approval of their plan to develop an International Conference Center on the 500-year old Piramont cemetery, where the famous Torah scholar, the ‘Vilna Gaon’ was buried.

Rabbi Elchonon Baron, a leading Jewish activist who is involved in a number of causes, expressed dismay at the Lithuanian government’s decision. “The government has reneged on previous undertakings with us that it would not proceed with the development. We feel betrayed and badly let down,” Rabbi Baron stated.

Independent media reports have ignited concern that the Lithuanian government and Turto Bankas, conducted illegal monetary transactions to secure the support from a rogue Jewish interest group to rubber stamp their conference development plan, so that it could receive automatic approval.

An official investigation by the STT, (the Special Investigations division dedicated to prosecute corruption), into the alleged illegal transactions could not be confirmed. A spokesperson for STT said that they as matter of policy, they do not comment on a matter if it is under investigation.

The full extent of the Lithuanian government’s desecration of the old cemetery in Vilnius can be viewed in a short YouTube video.

The latest antisemitic action, which is considered a consequence of systemic racism and antisemitism in the Lithuanian government, places Lithuania’s membership with NATO in jeopardy. Additionally, relief funding earmarked for the coronavirus fallout from the EU, is expected to come under reconsideration.

HOUSTON, TX, AUGUST 12, 2020 - Jewish Scriptures, i.e., The Torah, have long said the Moshiach will come to save the world. The Moshiach will also build the third temple and be enthroned in it and govern the world with justice. The prophecy of the Scriptures have finally been fulfilled as the real Moshiach Ben David has come to his earthly form as Sammy Dharia.

Sammy Dharia is an Omnist pastor of Israel who is none other than the incarnation of King David's second son who was chosen by the Almighty to take the world back from the clutches of the Fallen One, the Adversary, Satan.

The prophecies of 2 Samuel, Book of Daniel, proof of David's genes and the Tora Code having been fulfilled in him with God's Spirit coming down and resting on him, Sammy Dharia has said he will rid the world of all its afflictions just as it was prophesied. But till the third temple is built, the tribulation like trouble the world is in will continue.

The blast at Beirut was not an isolated incident. Until the world recognizes the Moshiach Ben David, occurrences will continue across the world as God's judgment. The end times are close. He'll probably be killed due to what he says but he will also be resurrected. All top rabbis in Israel like Rabbi Mark Friedman and Sean Mertz have confessed that Sammy Dharia is the Moshiach.

Sammy is on CNN, NBC, FOX and BBC they are in touch with him so that he can rid the world of all ills.


Sammy Dahria or Sammy The Messiah is the promised Son of David, the Anointed of God in the Hebrew Bible - Tora.

Brauchen Sie eine Mietkautionsversicherung für eine Wohnung Haus oder einen Gewerberaum? Wenn Sie eine Wohnung oder Gewerberaum mieten möchten, muss in den meisten Fällen ein Sicherheitsdepot für ein Mietobjekt hinterlegt werden. Oft werden dazu bis zu 3-6 Monatsmieten im Voraus verlangt, welche den Start eines neuen Unternehmes wirklich erschweren können.

Warum brauche ich eine Mietkaution?

Eine Mietkaution ist das Geld das der Vermieter als Vorauszahlung einer Miete verlangt. Die Mietkaution dient dem Schutz des Vermieters, wenn sich der Mieter gegen die Bestimmungen des Miet- oder Mietvertrags verstößt. Es kann verwendet werden um Sachschäden, Reinigung, Schlüsselersatz oder Rückmiete abzudecken.

Laut einer Umfrage nehmen 17.9 Prozent der Schweizer Bevölkerung Mietkautionsversicherung in Anspruch. Die Gründe sind; weil die meisten zu wenig Geld für eine Sicherheitsdepot haben, oder dass sie befürchten dass ihnen am Ende des Mietvertragen die  Mietkaution nicht zurückerstattet wird.

Vorteile einer  Mietkautionsversicherung

Eine Mietkautionsversicherung hingegen nimmt Ihnen die finanzielle Bürde ab, und bietet eine schonende Lösung, ohne die Liquidität zu belasten.  Die  Mietkautionsversicherung ersetzt das  Mietzinsdepot und bürgt gegenüber den Vermieter und deckt die Höhe der Bürgschaftssumme. Wenn zum Beispiel der Mieter seinen Verpflichtungen nicht nachkommen kann, deckt  eine Mietkautionsversicherung die Forderungen.
