A new welcoming home opened up for Jewish tourists and locals in Moscow recently, providing them with Shabbat hospitality and homey atmosphere in the huge capital of Russia. A large hotel in the city center, Azimut Olympic, offers meals, prayer services, and other accommodations to the Jewish population traveling, working and living in the city.
“This is the first time an arrangement like this has been achieved in a regular city hotel,” said Rabbi Yakov Fridman, the rabbi of Moscow’s Israeli community and the organizer behind the new venue. “The hotel also agreed to fully accommodate Shabbat-observant guests by giving them regular keys and moving the check-out time until after Shabbat.”
Jewish guests are welcomed at Azimut on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings for services and the festive meals, and those who wish may reserve to stay at the hotel for the entire duration of Shabbat. The Red Square and other city attractions are in about 20 to 30-minute walking distance, Rabbi Fridman said.
