Greetings to Russian Jews

September 15, 2023

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to Russia’s Jews on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

The message reads, in part:

“This holiday, which marks the beginning of a new year in the Jewish calendar, calls believers to repentance, gives them joy and hope, serves to affirm moral values, and enhances people’s aspirations for the high ideals of mercy and compassion.

It is gratifying that Russian Jews support these many-thousand-year-old traditions to make a major contribution to the preservation of our country’s cultural diversity, engage in active educational work, and promote interethnic accord in society.”
