MOSCOW Dmitry Radyshevsky has watched how the Christian Right has turned churches in the United States into bastions of support for Israel. Then, he thought, why can't the same thing be done in Russia?

Radyshevsky, executive director of the Tel Aviv-based Mikhail Chernoy Foundation has been making the rounds in Moscow and abroad to convert the Russian Orthodox Church into a pro-Israel and pro-Jewish force. His message, novel for a country that for centuries has been characterized as anti-Semitic, is that Russian Orthodox Christians and their church have a religious duty to support Israel and end anti-Semitism.
