Alma Ata Visitors Bring Humanitarian Aid

The 250 visitors to Alma Ata who came to daven at Harav Levi Yitzchak’s Ohel brought a load of many tons of humanitarian aid and kosher food to assist the local communities.  

As reported on, 250 Chassidim from across the world were permitted to enter Kazakhstan for one day only, in order to enter the Holy Tzion of Reb Levi Yitzchak Schneerson zt”l in Alma Ata.

In coordination with the local authorities, tons of kosher food and humanitarian and medical equipment will be allowed in to assist the hospitals and aid organizations for the benefit of the country’s residents.
In a special ceremony to be held on Monday, the Heads of State will express their appreciation to the Jewish philanthropists and special delegation that sanctifies the name of heaven by offering assistance in the midst of the international corona crisis.

Alongside the arrival of the two special planes, allowed to bring 250 Chassidim from across the world to Kazakhstan to pray by the Tzion of the Baal HaHillula on Monday Chof Menachem Av, a few moments of ‘Kiddush Hashem’ will also be noted when the planes land in Alma Ata.

The shutdown of air travel during the Corona era has led many countries to face shortages of both food and equipment. 

The delegations arriving from the United States and Ukraine have also taken care of that. Many tons of medical and humanitarian equipment, basic food necessities for the country’s citizens of all religions, and thousands of kilograms of kosher food for the Jews of Kazakhstan, were loaded into the plane’s belly holds. 

On Monday, an official ceremony will take place with the participation of government representatives, in which they will express their appreciation to the philanthropists R’ Avi Shaulson and his family from Miami and R’ Shmuel Stern and his family from New York for caring and thinking about the country’s residents.
