Moscow chief rabbi leaves for not supporting Ukraine war

Pinchas Goldschmidt, Moscow’s chief rabbi, has left Russia with his wife in the face of pressure from authorities to publicly support Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine, his daughter-in-law, journalist Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt, announced on Twitter.

Chizhik-Goldschmidt added that her in-laws “flew to Hungary two weeks after the start of the invasion of Ukraine,” where for several weeks they helped Ukrainian refugees, and are currently in Israel.

“Now they are exiled from the community they loved, built and from where they watched their children grow up for more than 33 years,” he said, noting that despite being out of the country, his father-in-law was re-elected chief rabbi of Moscow.

Goldschmidt has served as chief rabbi of the Russian capital for the past three decades, is one of the creators of the Russian Hebrew Congress and a member of its board of directors. He is also chairman of the Hebrew Community of Europe and of the Bet Din of the Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic countries.
