F. Kukliansky has been awarded for her active role in preparing important international agreements, cooperation between the Lithuanian Jewish Community and the Foreign Ministry, her personal contribution to the drafting, implementation of the Law on the Good Will Compensation, and the Community’s active participation in projects of Lithuanian diplomatic representations.

“I am very pleased with our friendship and cooperation that are of great importance to the interests of our country. Your work is not limited to the leadership of the Jewish Community. Lithuania has also gained most visible benefits from it,” said the Foreign Minister L. Linkevičius.

The lawyer F. Kukliansky served as the Deputy Chair of the Lithuanian Jewish Community from 2009 to 2013. She was elected as Chair in 2013. For many years, F. Kukliansky dedicated herself to the Jewish Community of Lithuania and Jews living beyond the borders of Lithuania. She strived to ensure that Lithuanian Jews were fully integrated into the Lithuanian society, and that Lithuanians, as well as people from different backgrounds would become acquainted with the culture, religion, and way of life of the Jewish people. According to F. Kukliansky, people living in one society need to know and understand each other better in order to prevent a repeat of the tragedy that befell Jews in our country, resulting in the near-total annihilation of the Lithuanian Jewry.

The Lithuanian Jewish Community was established 30 years ago.
