Despite having power knocked out due to Russian bombardments, activities continued at the Alter Rebbe’s Ohel in Haditch, almost as regular.
Many parts of Ukraine have been plunged into darkness and frigid cold over the past week, as the Russsians bombard the country’s energy infrastructure. In the Poltava region, large areas are cut off from electricity, including the town of Haditch, where the Alter Rebbe’s Ohel is located.
Nonetheless, activities continued at the Ohel compound as much as possible. These include hosting and feeding dozens of Jewish refugees who have been sheltering in the campus’ hospitality rooms since the war broke out.
With no working ovens or heaters, the food was prepared with wood fires, and the refugees are using wood chips to heat their rooms.
