The Jewish Community in Russia

If you know a little bit about the history of Jews in Russia you will remember the great difficulty that they faced from the 18th to the 19th century making Judaism into a very secret affair and indeed in the 17th century under the reign of the Bolsheviks many Jews perished. Then a further 1 million Russian Jews left Russia to live in Israel as communism became incredibly hard on them.

How times have changed thanks to the childhood education of Poutine who spent many happy hours dining with his neighbors who were Jewish and because of this he has gone on to become a great vector in the development of Judaism in modern day Russia. The Rabbi Berel Lazar is a close friend of Poutine and has been bringing great things to the Russian Jewish community. Never before have so many beautiful synagogues been built and never before have Jewish people felt so relaxed about their religion. Now the tables have turned and many Jews from Israel are returning to Russia.

We can see in St. Petersburg kosher restaurant Golden or heading up to Moscow where there are 100,000 members of the Jewish community there, we can find two restaurants Iyerusalim and Café Alef.
Russia has become a great place to visit and boasts the six largest Jewish community in the world.
