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.
"For years the values of Judaism have been serving noble goals - uniting people, improvement of trust and mutual understanding between them," the greeting 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."
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is celebrated in 2015 from sundown on September 13 to the evening of September 15. Traditional Rosh Hashanah foods are apples and honey, raisin challah, honey cake and pomegranate.
