Chabad Translating Religious Texts into Russian

The Russian Federation of Jewish Communities has announced that Chabad-Lubavitch scholars and rabbis will embark on a five-year project to translate 50 religious texts into Russian.

The Library of Jewish texts project "is the largest-ever project for the publication of academically accomplished Russian translations," Federation spokesman Baruch Gorin said. The first translation will be The Lamentations of the Ninth of Av: The Temple We Have Lost and will include an article explaining the history of the First and Second Temples.
