Rabbi Levin of Moscow Sends Holiday Greetings Through Teenage Visitors

Rabbi Yehuda Leib, Chief Rabbi of Moscow’s Central Synagogue, sent his New Year’s greetings to American and Canadian Jewry through a group of teenagers who visited him in Moscow. The group has just returned from a trip to the Soviet Union, Rumania and Israel under the auspices of the United Synagogue of America.

The 76-year-old rabbi, whose visit to the United States a year ago provoked a storm, expressed warm appreciation for the visit of the youngsters who were led by Rabbi Arthur A. Chiel of Woodbridge, N.Y. He described the meeting as a gladdening encounter.
