Greetings to all Russian Jews

April 5, 2023

Vladimir Putin sent Passover greetings to Russian Jews.

The message reads, in part:

“Passover reminds the followers of Judaism of the events of the ancient past – the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery. It symbolises the triumph of the ideals of freedom, good deeds and justice. Its centuries-old traditions are carefully passed from one generation to another.

It is gratifying that the Jewish community in our country leads a full and versatile life – you create new religious, educational and cultural centres, open new museums and exhibitions. Jewish organisations pay much attention to charity and educational activities. You make a tangible contribution to preserving inter-ethnic and inter-religious peace and take part in educating the younger generation and introducing it to the priceless spiritual, moral and historical heritage of their ancestors.”
