Abstract: The article presents an analysis of the transformations of rhetoric identified in the Lithuanian press in the publications on the “Jewish question”. The established tradition of the Lithuanian press was to picture the Lithuanian Jewish community as a problematic national minority. There were statements voiced to the effect that Jews did not support the main goals of Lithuania, that instead of Lithuanian they were using foreign languages (first of all, Russian and German) for communication. In addition, the generally accepted view was that Jews were over-dominating in Lithuanian economic life. Such opinions were still common in the 1920s and 1930s; however, at that time slightly different attitudes were already emerging reflecting some changes in the Lithuanian mentality, especially the idea that every group within the Lithuanian society should know its place and perform a particular role. As regards the rhetoric concerning the Jewish community, more authors began to escalate the question of Jewish alienation based on differences in national psychology or even race. They argued that Jews were not able to change in principle, and it could be difficult to Lithuanize them or to make them more pro-Lithuanian. It is due to this reason that both Jews and Lithuanians should know the status and position of both communities in the society. Lithuanians were seen as owners of the state, and Jews were encouraged to accept this idea in order to avoid conflicts on this issue in the future
