There are thought to be around 250,000 Jews living in Moscow, so when you’re looking for love, the odds are firmly stacked in your favor.
Jewish influences are evident in many parts of Russia’s biggest city, so there are plenty of places and opportunities to find the partner of your dreams in this historic and diverse location.
Transport yourself to Tel Aviv – a popular bar and restaurant with an abundance of live music and entertainment. This is a place you’ll be made to feel welcome so don’t be afraid to come here and dine alone – you’ll soon be enjoying the convivial atmosphere. And perhaps you’ll get to make new friends, or even find romance.
The Old Choral Synagogue
The Old Choral Synagogue stands proudly and has a history spanning over a century. If you’re new to the city, this is an obvious destination to come and meet fellow Jewish Muscovites.
Sadly, the old Jewish Quarter was destroyed many years ago, but this stunning synagogue remained intact and remains a vital part of the Jewish community today.
The Moscow Jewish Film Festival
2015 saw the inaugural Moscow Jewish Film Festival taking place. This exciting new event is a must-do date for your diary. Not only will you get to enjoy some of the finest Jewish cinema in the world, it’s also a great place to make new connections with people your age.
Over 2,000 people attended over the 3 days for the first festival, and it’s sure to grow in popularity in the coming years. Make sure you don’t miss it.
Nikitskaya Jewish Cultural Center
Take part in workshops, seminars, events and exhibitions at the JCC in a lovely 19th century building. There’s always something interesting to do here and of course, the people who attend make it all the more enjoyable.
There’s an art-café on the premises too so after an activity you can have a drink or bite to eat while you get to know other Jewish Muscovites better.
When you do get yourself a date, a trip to Hermitage Garden is a must. It may not have any Jewish connections, but that doesn’t matter. It’s a beautifully maintained and romantic space that feels like a million miles away from the bustling city.
Subtle lighting, love heart sculptures and tree lined pathways all add a magical tough to this exquisite outdoor space.
We hope you’ll fall truly, madly, deeply in love when you find that special someone in Moscow.
