In Brief ...
"Jewish wars" are raging on the expanse from Moscow up to most outlying districts! Jews in the smallest towns and communities rack their brains to solve their eternal question, "Which of us is superior, and which is even more superior?". Saying nothing about the capital where they go on debating - who, after all, is Chief Rabbi of Russia?
An old synagogue in the Spaso-Golenishchensky lane (former Arkhepov Street) is the residence of an elderly, tired, appointed already by the Soviet power Chief Rabbi of Russia Adolf Solomonovich Shaevich, whereas a new community center-palace in Maryina Roshcha is home to a young, energetic, former Italian Jew to have recently become a citizen of Russia Berl Lazar. He was made ("pulled", nominated") Chief Rabbi of Russia by Hasids of Lyubavichi Rabbi - khabadniks.
