Putin Loves Matzah


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.



  1. Putin is a blessing for the Jews, that’s a fact I heard from a Russian yid. We may not like his strong arm approach but he’s been good to the Jews, and we shouldn’t overlook that kindness.

  2. Nothing unusual. Lots of Russian goyim like the taste of matza, even if they don’t particularly like the Jews. Similar to American goyim liking bagels.

  3. Putin also has a good relationship with Russia’s chief rabbi, Berel Lazar.
    But he is also an enigmatic personality, who plays his cards close to his chest.
