An estimated 10,000 Jewish families in Moscow and the Moscow Region, who are beneficiaries of the Shaarei Tzedek Charity Center, are receiving special food packages in honor of the upcoming Purim holiday.
Each parcel includes smoked salmon, Kauffmann vodka, wafers, sunflower oil, candy, sausages, chicken, mayonnaise, canned corn and other items.
about: The Shaarei Tzedek Charity Center is the largest charity center operating in the former Soviet Union. Since opening its doors to the Jewish community in the Marina Roscha neighborhood over 10 years ago, the JCC has not only become the main meeting place for Moscow Jews, but also a center of Jewish life for the entire country. Thanks to the Moscow JCC, hundreds of thousands of Jews have become acquainted with Jewish life by attending diverse events and a variety of clubs and workshops that are regularly held at the Moscow JCC.
also: On Monday, March 14th, community workers in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, began to hand out food packages to 6000 veterans, pensioners and disabled Jews.
