Rabbi Shimon Freundlich from Beijing along with Rabbi Shalom Greenberg from Shanghai saying the prayer called ויתן לך - may you be blessed - 愿你得到祝福 this Saturday night.

This Saturday night prayer is traditionally recited by 2 people TOGETHER.

After a quiet Shabbat with few people in attendance, by the time Saturday night came around there was only one option left (to recite this prayer), A VIDEO CALL! The 2 Rabbi's left in China who are helping their respective communities and local Chinese citizens fight the coronavirus both physically and spiritually, had no one with them to recite this prayer, and therefore called each other via video to fulfill this custom. 

שבוע טוב ומבורך לכולם! 

With wishes for a healthy and safe week!

希望有一个健康安全的一周!

After donning his Tefillin (phylacteries for Jewish prayer), on Monday, February 3, Rabbi Shalom Greenberg from Chabad-Lubavitch of Shanghai donned...his mask and went to give the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum 10,000 masks to distribute amongst the elderly Chinese population in the historic Hongkou area, known during WWII as the “Jewish Ghetto.”

“We are honored to be able to help wonderful people who helped our people at a time of dire need,” Rabbi Greenberg told us. 

 

“Last week, the world commemorated 75 years of the liberation of the death camps. At that time, tens of thousands of Jewish people found refuge in Shanghai, particularly in this exact area! 

This is a small expression of gratitude to the Chinese people for their friendship and support.”

Rabbi Greenberg calls out to the international community to join the effort and help the elderly and infirm have easy access to the supplies they need during this time. 

“The masks are crucial to allow the elderly the mobility to organize their every day needs, ” Greenberg says. 

With the large population taking great care and precaution, supplies are low. These masks came from an overseas sponsor at Chabad-Lubavitch. 

The staff of the museum and additional volunteers have pledged to go door to door to distribute the masks, so that the elderly and infirm need not put themselves at further risk by queuing up in the cold weather, and at a time when gatherings can be potentially unsafe during an epidemic of this proportion.

𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗮 𝗩𝗶𝗿𝘂𝘀

We in HK/China are known for having real frenzy from such outbreaks, especially with our history with SARS.

Schools, universities and businesses are closed as more and more people are leaving due to the spread of the virus, which is disrupting regular life on the continent.

The Chabad Emissaries around all HK and mainland China are staying put and not leaving.

We are here to strengthen the Jewish communities as well as the local population by distributing masks and warm meals, as well as offering personal guidance, activities for adults and kids, and whatever else may be needed.

Please continue to pray, as we do, that this new virus should disappear as quickly as it arrived and soon better days will come to us all. Thank you for all your warm wishes continuously. chabadpraysforchina
