MOSCOW, March 25 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russian Jews on the Passover holiday, the presidential press service reports.
“This holiday, among the most revered in Judaism, commemorates the ancient events - the liberation of Jews from slavery and the attainment of the Ten Commandments taken up by entire humanity and forming the core of the generally recognized moral norms and values,” the president’s telegram says in part.
“The life of the Jewish community in Russia is now rich in remarkable positive events. Religious, educational and cultural centers are set up, museums open and exhibitions held, international humanitarian contacts are expanded. The community makes significant contribution to the strengthening of the interethnic and inter-confessional dialogue in the country and to the consolidation of centuries-old friendship of its peoples. I am sure that this will be so further on,” says the congratulatory message of the head of state.
