Russian President Vladimir Putin and other Russian dignitaries joined Russia’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar for a special tour of the Russian Jewish Museum of Tolerance, considered the largest Jewish museum in the world.

Federation of Jewish Communities president Alexander Boroda also was present to escort Putin at the museum exhibits in the 90,000-square-foot former bus garage. The $50 million facility opened last year after four years of construction. The museum is intended to explore Jewish civilization and its cultural foundations and achievements, while advancing tolerance and harmony.
