Russia's Chief Rabbi Berl Lazar shares Vladimir Putin's confidence that spirituality must be enhanced
Berl Lazar shares Vladimir Putin's confidence that spirituality must be enhanced, and that family and ethical values must play a more important role in the life of society. This is stated in Berl Lazar's commentary to the Russian President's state-of-the-nation address that was received by RIA Novosti today. "As I see it, the presidential address has mentioned the importance of the socio-moral and spiritual sphere of our society's development for the first time. Religious leaders must react to this subject," Lazar noted. In his words, the history of Russia and its nations shows that "family values were instrumental in ensuring social stability." "Unfortunately, the younger generation's family ties have been weakened. Young people are less committed to traditions and values that a healthy and full-fledged family offers," the Rabbi added. "It is very good that the President is noting the need to raise the prestige of motherhood and fatherhood and to create favorable conditions for childbirth and the upbringing of children," Lazar stressed. Lazar is also sure that that all these problems cannot be solved without religious leaders. Lazar noted yet another important aspect of the presidential message, which notes the need for business ethics. "The most developed countries prosper because their business communities are always subject to control by tough religious morals," the Rabbi noted. "Business and decency are both compatible and inseparably linked. We must strengthen this link by reverting to traditional values of Russian spirituality, religiousness and charitable activities," Lazar stressed
