Olga Lempert has always been actively involved in Jewish life. For many years, she worked as a counselor and teacher in various educational programs for children and youth and taught Jewish Studies to children and youth in the FSU via seminars and summer camps called Sambation. She is also a freelance translator and interpreter, and her most frequent subjects are Jewish history and culture.
In 2012, she moved to Israel, where her involvement took a more personal turn. Having tried her hand working at Yad Vashem and at an archaeological excavation in the City of David, she has gone on to translate Israeli literature into Lithuanian and working at the National Library of Israel, helping create its European Jewish Ephemera Collection documenting modern Jewish life in European communities.
