 Putin congratulates Russian Jews on Rosh Hashanah

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russia's Jews on Rosh Hashanah -  the Jewish New Year, the Kremlin press service reported.

"The celebration of the Jewish New Year is a major event in the life of the Jewish community, a tribute to the historical and spiritual heritage of Jews and their distinctive culture and customs. I am glad that you are encouraging young people to keep up these centuries old traditions. On this holiday, the supporters of Judaism analyse their achievements, make plans for the future and become aware of their special responsibility for the welfare of those who need their assistance and support," the statement says.

Putin expressed confidence that Russia's Jewish organisations will actively contribute to the implementation of much-needed educational and awareness initiatives, as well as to the acts of compassion and charity, and will also promote religious tolerance and good relations between people of different faiths.”
