Russia won’t preserve Jewish manuscripts

In the response to a ruling by the Washington District Court, Russia rejected the US court’s authority to order it to preserve a huge collection of Hassidic manuscripts.

The Chabad movement brought the case to save tens of thousands of manuscripts which the Nazis and Russians had looted from Jews in the twentieth century. The manuscripts are stored in appalling conditions, and many have found their way to the black market.

The Russians refuse to transfer the manuscripts to Chabad. The Israeli government transferred Sergiev Courtyard [1] in Jerusalem to the Russians.
