Default Israel in uproar after chief rabbi calls ex-Soviet Jews ‘religion-hating’ communists

Israel in uproar after chief rabbi calls ex-Soviet Jews ‘religion-hating’ communists

Jan. 7, 2020

JERUSALEM — Between 1989 and the mid-2000s, as the Soviet Union unraveled and fell into ongoing turbulence, about 1.5 million Jews made their way across newly opened borders and fled.

One million of them went to Israel, where they were received as long-lost brethren and provided financial assistance to resettle.

For many Israelis, the arrival of “the Russians” was experienced as something akin to the fulfillment of a biblical prophecy, in which the reincarnated Jewish homeland welcomed exiles to their ancestral home.
