Learning to tolerate Judaism in Kazakhstan

Learning to tolerate Judaism in Kazakhstan 

While covering the Fifth Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions in Astana recently, The Jakarta Post visited the Beit Rachel synagogue. Beit Rachel is the largest house of Judaic worship in Central Asia.

Kazakhstani Rabbi chief Yeshaya Cohen expressed his appreciation for the government for its support of the local Jewish community. Such support included facilitating the development of the synagogue, and in the present day, working to strengthen religious tolerance between Muslims and Jews.
