The Vilna Gaon (sage) Eliyahu bin Shlomo Zalman (1720-1797) is one of the most famous Jewish sages and world-renowned analyst of the Torah and Talmud. Thanks to him, Vilnius became known as the Lithuanian Jerusalem. They say that as a child he knew the Torah by heart. It is said that because of his wisdom and knowledge, Count Potocki accepted Judaism. It is said that he was buried at the place where Vilnius once originated at the confluence of Vilia and Neris - where Zamkova Mountain stands today. His former home is marked with a memorial plaque, and a monument in his honor can be found near the house. Translated with Google Translate
