Nusach Vilne Federation of Jews from Vilna in U.S.A. is a not-for-profit organization active in New York since c. 1947, founded by Holocaust survivors from Vilna (Wilno) and the Vilna vicinity, in what was formerly Poland. Organized cultural events, subsidized writers who published works about Vilna, conducted an annual commemoration ceremony in memory of the annihilated Jewish population, and published sixteen issues of a newsletter. Contributed to various buildings, including "Beth Vilna" in Tel Aviv and the YIVO Library in New York. In 2002, inaugurated the permanent exhibition, "Our Hometown Vilna" at YIVO and sponsored the translation and publication of Herman Kruk's diary from World War II, which appeared in 2002 as The Last Days of the Jerusalem of Lithuania: Chronicles from the Vilna Ghetto and the Camps, 1939-1944.
