Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt left Russia after fighting the war and fearing for himself if he stayed in Moscow.

Russia is facing a massive emigration of its Jewish population abroad, with at least one in eight having left the country since the start of the war with Ukraine.

The Jewish Agency helps Jews around the world move to Israel. The agency says that 20,500 of the total Russian Jews, estimated at 165,000, have left since March.

Thousands more have moved to other countries.

The specter of historical Jewish persecution looms large in the minds of many who are part of this sudden exodus, who are still trying to get out of Russia.
