Russian Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar, a confidant of President Vladimir Putin, said that the Russian leader loves matzah and eats it the whole year, Yediot Acharonot reported.
“President Putin told me that it’s the healthiest, tastiest and easiest thing to eat,” he said. “He drinks it with tea. He eats the matzah I bring him.”
Rav Lazar added that Putin is involved with Jewish life, knows which towns have shuls, and gave a month’s salary towards a Jewish museum.
