Russia’s Largest Welfare and Medical Center Opens in Moscow

Moscow, Russia

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.

"The beauty of this building is not only in its walls, but in the activities that are to be carried out here," said Yuri Luzhkov, Moscow’s mayor at the ribbon cutting.

The Sharei Tzedek medical center is a project of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia.
