ADDRESS OF FOUNDERS
“Tolerance, readiness to forgive, understand and help each other are simple self-explanatory fundamental truths of the 21st century. The century, which with the help of its ordeals, helps us to understand the value of every human life and full significant of humanism and tolerance. I do believe love, education and harmony can become the basis for our future. I am happy there exists the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow, Russia, it supports these principles and serves the interests of our shared future — the future without xenophobia, hate or intolerance. I am deeply grateful to the people who give their time, efforts, and means to achieve these goals”.
Kseniya Rappoport, prominent Russian actress
