(Worthy News) – Multiple Jewish organizations in Russia have received threatening letters in recent weeks from the Russian Justice Ministry regarding their work, similar to the letter received by the Jewish Agency earlier this month, The Jerusalem Post has learned.
The Jerusalem Post has learned that several Jewish organizations operating in Russia are in a similar situation to that of the Jewish Agency. The agency has received a letter from the Russian government, that said it might be considered a foreign agent, which could result in the organization being forcibly closed down.
One of the organizations sent a statement claiming, “There is no change in our work in Russia.” Yet The Post understands that these organizations, mainly kept in operation by American or Israeli funds, have decided to lower their profile and only do work that is necessary or urgent.
