Russian President Dmitry Medvedev congratulated Russia's Jewish community on the Jewish New Year holiday, Rosh Hashanah.
Mr Medvedev’s message of congratulations says, in particular:
“This last year has been a very successful one for Russia’s Jewish community – new synagogues, educational and social establishments have opened. This illustrates the revival and development of your people’s culture.
It is pleasing to see that through the centuries you have preserved the traditions of tolerance, peace, strong family ties, and make an important contribution to building up mutual understanding and harmony in society and strengthening interethnic and inter-faith dialogue”.
