Russia’s Chief Rabbi and Chabad-Lubavitch emissary Rabbi Berl Lazar this week recited the blessings while lighting a giant menorah in Moscow.
“Despite the situation, permits were given,” Chabad emissaries in Moscow said about the Menorah lighting held right outside the walls of the Kremlin.
A large crowd of people participated in the joyous celebration, even though it was snowing and freezing cold, demonstrating the strength and dedication of Russian Jewry.
