Knesset Speaker Meets with Moscow Shluchim

The Speaker of the Israeli Knesset, Mr. Yuli Edelstein, completed an official state visit to Russia by meeting with the community leaders and Shluchim operating in Moscow and its surrounding area, led by Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar.

Himself once a political prisoner in the USSR, he described with tears in his eyes how he attended a Bris Milah in a basement in the very same city under the nose of the KGB, and now he is witnessing the rebirth and flourishing of Jewish life all around the country, thanks to those present.
