Shavuot Aid Packages to Moscow’s Jews

As customary every holiday eve, special food packages have been distributed to thousands of needy Jews across Moscow by the “Shaarei Tzedek Jewish Chessed Center” in the Marina Roscha neighborhood of Russian Moscow.

Large and needy families, as well as those going through challenging times, were invited to pick up boxes full of quality products that will bring joy to them and their family members during the festival of Shavuot.

Despite Shavuot not being a holiday with as many meals as other holidays, the founder of the Chessed Center, Russia’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar, encouraged Moscow’s “Simchat Shabbat and Yom Tov” organization to do all that they can to ensure that those who require assistance will not be left behind. Those who receive the traditional food packages every Friday will also receive a generous package.

In additional to the usual chicken, meat, wine, fish, fruit, and vegetables, in honor of Shavuot a case of dairy products was added. This includes milk, butter, various kinds of cheeses, and even ice cream, all in order to enable everyone to fulfill the custom of eating dairy on the festival of the Giving of the Torah”.

This much-needed help is made possible by the donations of many friends who are intimately familiar with the extensive activity of the Chessed Center throughout the year, assisting hundreds and thousands of needy people in Moscow and its surrounds.

A special donation was received from the Tropanov family, for the merit of their son Alexander Sasha ben Lena Leah who is still being held hostage by Hamas. The Moscow Jewish community has adopted his family, assisting and supporting them during the long and difficult months since he was abducted on Simchat Torah. May he come home and be reunited with his family very very soon along with all our sisters and brothers who are still being held as hostages.
