Lithuania's Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius has congratulated former leader of the Lithuanian Jewish Community Simonas Alperavičius on his 85th birthday.

In his congratulatory message, Butkevičius says that Lithuania's future is only possible with a prospering and fully functional Jewish community, noting its contribution to the rebuilding of the Lithuanian independence.

"The rebirth of Lithuania took place at the same time as another event – Lithuania rediscovered its Jewish Community that had been alive for many decades after the war. We did not only discover our Jewish neighbors but also their aspiration to be a beautiful and unique part of Lithuania, their aspiration to be what they were born to be – Jews," the government said in a press release cited by the press service.

According to the press release, Alperavičius headed the Jewish community for more than two decades since 1992.
