Howard Spiegler is quoted in "Chabad Court Victory Sparks Russia-U.S. Art War," which describes how a long-running dispute between Russia and Chabad over ownership of centuries-old holy texts has cast doubt on whether major Western institutions will lend art and other cultural property to Russia. Howard says Russia is disingenuous in trying to blame Chabad for the dispute and notes that exhibitions imported from abroad are protected from seizure as long as the U.S. State Department has certified them.
