      Chabad Opposes Putin Compromise


      The Chabad Lubavitch movement has expressed opposition to a proposal from Russia’s President Putin regarding the Chabad movement library in Russia. Leaders in the movement repeated their demand that the books be sent to the Chabad movement in New York.

      Putin visited the Chabad movement’s Jewish Museum in Moscow recently and made a surprising offer to transfer the Chabad library to the museum. Putin said it was “unthinkable” that the collection be transferred to the United States.
