MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has sent greetings to Russian Jews on their New Year - Rosh Hashanah, the Kremlin’s website reads.

"Russian Jewish religious organisations are working actively to support inter-ethnic peace and concord in the society, development of fruitful dialogue with other traditional religions, fighting anti-Semitism and xenophobia; they are active in implementation of demanded charity, educational projects and initiatives."
