On Thursday, November 8, Israeli President Shimon Peres officially opened a new Jewish Museum of Tolerance in Moscow. Among the first visitors of the museum were Head rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

      The museum is placed on the Obraztsov street in a historic building of Bakhmetyev's Garage, which was formerly an art gallery run by socialite Dasha Zhukova. 

      It features permanent and temporary exhibitions, conference halls, a library, a research center, a children's center, a museum shop, and a kosher cafe. It boasts twelve pavilions with a 4D cinema located at its entrance. Like its ‘twins’ in New York, Paris and Berlin, the Moscow museum highlights historic Jewish documents, photographs and letters spanning a period of more over two centuries.

      “This museum is an eloquent declaration of the principles of tolerance toward people and their freedom,” Shimon Peres said.

      The museum will be opened to visitors for the first time on Sunday.
