Russian authorities say they will help ensure the safety of synagogues and Jewish schools in Moscow. In response to a request by the Russian Jewish Congress, Russian police will start providing special security measures this month for Jewish institutions in the Moscow area. All four functioning synagogues in the Russian capital, along with all Jewish schools, Moscow’s Jewish theater and the office of a Jewish weekly newspaper, will be patrolled around the clock by a special police task force.
