Malakhovka

  • Rebuilding a synagogue where Jews resisted Soviets

    In Soviet times, the small town of Malakhovka, less than 10 miles from Moscow, was the center of Jewish underground activity. In 2005 its old wooden synagogue was burned down in a fire. Five years later, the shared effort of local authorities and wealthy Moscow Jews have enabled the opening of a new synagogue. More ▸
