Israel's deputy Minister of Immigrant Absorption Yuli Edelstein is coming to Moscow on Monday on the invitation of the Jewish community and will stay in the capital until the end of the week, reported Yaron Gamburg, the press secretary of the Israeli Embassy to Moscow. Edelstein is expected to attend a conference called "Soviet Jews: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow," which is being organised by the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia.
