Chabad, Putin and Hamas
Two months ago, The Jewish Week published a very positive piece on Chabad.
In the last day, I couldn't help but thinking of the following portion of that piece, an anecdote told by Rabbi Berel Lazar, Chabad's head in Russia.
Rabbi Lazar recalled that in a Kremlin conversation, Putin told him about how he grew up terribly poor, with neighbors who were chasidim. "They always made sure to invite him over. They served him supper. They helped him with his homework. Friday night they gave him gefilte fish and knaidlach," said the rabbi.(emphasis added)
Well, I guess it's good that Putin is encouraging the "Jewish rebirth in Russia," now that he's also encouraging the murder of Jews in Israel, not to mention supporting Iran's nuclear bomb program.
I guess gefilte fish and knaidlach only go so far.
