Moscow Jews were shocked by anti-Semitic attacks against Chasidic Jews. Last week’s attacks occurred in the Marina Roscha neighborhood, just outside the city center, home to Moscow’s largest Jewish facility. Alexander Lakshin, the rabbi who is spearheading the anti-missionary activities of the Russian Jewish community as president of the Magen League, was beaten by a group of youths who shouted “kikes” while kicking him and hitting him with bottles.
