The release of a Russian translation of a volume of Talmud highlighted this week’s Jewish book festival in Moscow. The translation was done by a Jerusalem-based institute headed by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, who spoke at the forum. The weeklong event is the fourth annual festival sponsored by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
