Matzo Has An Unlikely Fan: Vladimir Putin

    The Chief Rabbi of Russia has let out a secret about his president — Vladimir Putin loves matzo and snacks on it all year long.

    Rabbi Berel Lazar told reporters about the president’s appetite for the unleavened flatbread at an event for the Jewish organization Limmud FSU in Moscow last week, Arutz Sheva reported.

    While Lazar didn’t specify what toppings Putin puts on his matzo, he did say that the president enjoys it best while drinking tea.
