The Chabad-Lubavitch Sharei Tzedek charity center in Moscow, a swank $13 million complex, introduces a new level of geriatric care for thousands of the city’s elderly.
The recently inaugurated building houses a medical clinic with a staff of over 30 doctors that will serve 7,000 patients monthly. A day center will host a colorful variety of activities for the elderly, reported FJC, and a soup kitchen will turn out 1500 hot meals daily, and another thousand to be delivered to the homebound, every day.
