While on a visit to Nicaragua for a shechita run, bochur Eliyahu Ezagui helped out in the dairy department as well, making sure locals would have cholov yisroel milk to drink.
Ezagui traveled to Nicaragua from Crown Heights to hold the country’s first shechita run, enabling Jewish visitors to Nicaragua and Jews of the local community to eat locally sourced kosher meat.
But he didn’t only help with with kosher meat. While there, he also helped arrange a milking run, to allow locals to enjoy fresh cholov yisroel milk.
“The experience really gave me a glimpse in how our grandparents used to get their kosher food, and more importantly, it gives a real appreciation for those who live far away from Jewish population centers and still tenaciously stick to the highest standards of kashrus, even if it involves not having fresh milk or meat for months on end,” Ezagui said.
