Russia’s largest yeshiva attacked with arson and swastikas on Passover

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

World Zionist Organization (WZO) Vice Chairman Yaakov Hagoel responded to the arson fire set at Moscow’s Torat Chaim yeshiva during a Passover Seder on Friday. According to the Interfax news agency, the fire was set in a storage area for kosher meat and swastikas were drawn at the yeshiva’s entrance.

“The anti-Semitic arsonists do not want to allow Diaspora Jews true freedom,” Hagoel said. “This serious incident at the Torat Chaim yeshiva in Russia’s capital is another red light in the righteous fight in the war against anti-Semitism and terror in Europe.”

“I call on Russia’s President Putin, a true friend of the State of Israel, to help and protect the Jews in his country, so that they are able, specifically, to proudly fulfill the holiday’s commandments, and in general are able to fulfill the other commandments without fear.

“I support the Jewish community in Moscow and hope they will be able to continue their work faithfully, without fearing such instances. I wish them a happy and kosher Passover holiday.”

MOSCOW, Russia — Jewish officials said Friday an arson fire was set at the largest yeshiva in Russia just ahead of the Passover meal celebration. Swastikas were also sprayed on the seminary.

No one was reported injured in the early Friday fire at the Torat Chaim school in an eastern Moscow suburb.

Olga Esaulova, a spokeswoman for Moscow’s chief rabbi, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying the fire was set in a storage area for kosher meat and that swastikas were drawn at the yeshiva’s entrance.

There were about 60 students, rabbis and guests in the building at the time, the state news agency RIA-Novosti reported.

While Russia has a long history of anti-Semitism, it has noticeably declined under Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Putin has made considerable efforts to reach out to Russian Jewish communities, both within his state’s borders and in Israel. His country’s chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, is a close confidante.

He has encouraged the restoration of dozens of synagogues destroyed under communism and taken a hard-line on anti-Semitism.
