From the moment they were informed that their test came back positive for Covid-19, Chabad of Nigeria escorted the family all the way to the airport 10 days later.

Chabad Nigeria verified that the flight plans and registrations were in order to ensure that the flight would take off early enough so that it would land before the onset of the Tel Aviv airport lockdown. 

NCAA (Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority) requested that the Chabad Rabbi in Lagos board the plane to assure that proper documentation protocols and signatures were in place.

The Rabbi and his wife also provided fresh Kosher food for the 15 medical and flight teams.

Chabad of Nigeria was established in 2013 by Rabbi Israel Uzan, and last November announced their newest permanent center in Lagos – led by Rabbi Mendy & Mazal Sternbach.
