Over 20,000 households in #Russia are receiving weekly food packages as part of an initiative of the country’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar to aid those suffering under lockdown.

With frozen meats, fruit, vegetables, and other basic groceries, challah and grape juice, as well as candles for #Shabbat and a pamphlet of Torah thoughts the packages are providing physical and spiritual sustenance to those who have lost their source of income, or are just too vulnerable, or afraid to leave their home. Several donors and many volunteers have volunteered their time, money, or donated supplies.

All donations are gathered in a large hangar in Moscow and from there distributed to 12,000 addresses in the capital city. Local #Chabad representatives take care of distribution to over 10,000 households in thirty other cities.
