South London's First Kosher Shop Honors Memory of Rabbi's Slain Brother

NEW Kosher store opened this month in south London!
.
“Growing up Jewish in Bulgaria under Communist rule, with no access to Jewish education and no freedom of religion, we never dreamed of having a kosher shop across the street from our house,” says Nikola, who emigrated to #Wimbledon in South London eighteen years ago. “For Westerners, it may be just another shop, but for us, it’s paradise.”
.
Of the approximately 180,000 Jewish residents of London, only about five percent live in South London. A round trip to North London for #kosher provisions takes more than two hours.

Most parents are reluctant to let their children loose in the aisles of the grocery store, fearing a grabfest of sugary snacks. But when 11-year-old soccer player Pancho Panchev walks around South London’s first dedicated kosher shop, tossing nutritious kosher items into his shopping cart, his fat...

"Since the Holocaust, most Jews in Zagreb have been too afraid to identify. Others don’t know they are Jewish. And Croatia’s intermarriage rate hovers near 100 percent.

But for the first time, we have a Jewish community that is practicing all the traditions. And this has changed everything. Chabad is the rebuilding of Jewish life here."

In Zagreb, people are coming forward to participate in an exciting experience that takes Judaism out of the museum and into the lived life. In the beginning, Yona Brandl’s classmates wanted to know what a kippah was, what those fringes hanging at his sides were, and why he wouldn’t eat at their ...

“I haven’t had a visit from anyone in over five years,” one federal prisoner wrote to Aleph.

New unique program from the Aleph Inst and Federal Bureau of Prisons allows non-connected volunteers to visit prisoners without using their allotted visitation hours!

Prison inmates are allotted a limited amount of visiting hours from family and friends. But for too many, visitors are rare. For some prisoners, years can pass before they receive a personal visit—whether it’s because they’re too far from family and friends for regular visitation or because th...
