The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia is concerned over frequented attacks on Jews in the Maryina Roshcha district
The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FEOR) is concerned over frequented attacks on Jews in the Maryina Roshcha district, saying that police should give stiffer resistance to anti-Semitic manifestations. Such comments were made in a RIA Novosti interview by FEOR press secretary Borukh Gorin, following the assault and battery of Magen League president, Rabbi, Prof. Alexander Lakshin. The rabbi was ruthlessly beaten by a group of young people last Friday when he with his friend rabbi Ruven Kuravsky and two children were returning home. They were chased by several 16- to 25-year-olds who chanted anti-Semitic slogans. Seizing the kids, the rabbis made an attempt to escape but the persecutors caught Lakshin and gave him a beating. He was delivered to the American medical center with injuries and bruises, rendered medical aid and then returned home. "Last month has already seen five attacks on Jews in this district, the seat of the Moscow Jewish community center," said Gorin. "Moscow chief rabbi Berl Lazar has sent letters to the heads of law-enforcement bodies with the request to meet and discuss measures to settle the problem," said Gorin. He believes there can be more police patrolling the dangerous district to prevent further crimes.
