Russian President Vladimir Putin sent Rosh Hashanah greetings to Russian Jews. “Today, Russia is experiencing difficult and dramatic times,” reads the letter given Wednesday to Berel Lazar, one of Russia’s two chief rabbis. “I am sure that the people of Russia must oppose the terrible threat of terrorism with unity, solidarity, civil responsibility and, of course, superhuman spiritual values, revered by people of all nationalities and religions.”
