A February trip to Moscow for Asian Jewish Life's founder Erica Lyons for participation in the Sefer International Conference on Jewish Studies (http://www.sefer.ru/eng/about/) was a great opportunity to explore a Jewish community with a bright future.
For a full story on the conference, please see Erica's eJewish Philanthropy story Studying the Future of Russian Jewry at http://ejewishphilanthropy.com/studying-the-future-for-russian-jewry/
The museum is filled with interactive and very high-tech exhibits (most with English translations).
Nearby is the Chabad Community Center and Synagogue.
The Jewish Community Center (Nikitskaya Jewish Cultural Centre) houses a number of differen organizations and institutions including a wonderful preschool.
A visit to the Choral Synagogue is a must. It is unbelievably beautiful and steeped in history.
Lastly, for a walk through history, see the Museum of the Jewish History in Russia.
