Discussion with the Chief Rabbi of Moscow in exile, Pinchas Goldschmidt, and the Chief Rabbi of Odessa, Shlomo Bakht.
What is the role of religion in war? How to know when it is time to leave? What can a conference of European rabbis do? These topics and personal experiences will be discussed by Rabbi Štěpán Menashe Kliment, the Rabbi of the Jewish Community of Brno, former Chief Rabbi of Moscow in exile, Pinchas Goldschmidt, and Chief Rabbi of Odessa, Shlomo Bakht. Rav Goldschmidt left Russia after he decided to refuse to express support for the invasion of Ukraine. Shlomo Bakht orchestrated a remarkable rescue operation, successfully evacuating over 200 children to safety.
