Moscow, September 18, Interfax - Russian President Vladimir Putin has congratulated Russia's Jews on the Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, according to a report published on the Kremlin website.
"Judaism followers in our country profoundly revere the invaluable historical and spiritual legacy of their forefathers and pass down their ancient, unique religious and cultural traditions from generation to generation. The celebration of the Jewish New Year is in its own right one of the crucial events in the life of the Jewish community," Putin said in his greetings.
"It is customary to spend these days summing up the results of the accomplished work and make plans for the future, care for the purity of one's thoughts and deeds, and help fellow human beings," he said.
The Russian president also noted "the large and relevant work of Jewish religious organizations aimed at implementing key social, charitable, awareness raising, and patriotic projects and working tirelessly to strengthen peace and accord, mutual respect and good neighborly relations between people."
"And, of course, there is your contribution to the common fight against the threat of the coronavirus infection," the president said.
