The rededication of the new fencing project of Lyubavichi (Lubavitch)

On Sunday, August, 26 2018 ESJF Chairman Rabbi Isaac Schapira, CEO Philip Carmel and FSU Projects Officer Yana Yanover attended the opening of the new fencing project at the Jewish Cemetery of Lyubavichi (Lubavitch) in the Rudnya rayon of Smolensk oblast, Russian Federation.

This project was made possible through the generous donation of Mr. Joseph Popack of the USA and through the involvement of the Geder Avos Jewish Heritage Group under the direction of our dear colleague Rabbi Moshe Rubin.

Leaders and rabbis of the Chabad movement from the US and Israel attended the event.

We are very grateful for the preparation and hosting of the ceremony at Lubavitch as well as to all those who so kindly hosted in Moscow over Shabbat.
