A direct missile attack hit the Nikolsky department store right next to the Kharkov shul on Wednesday night. The intensity of the explosion blew out windows in the shul.

At the time of the explosion over one hundred people were taking shelter in the shul, and thank G-d there were no casualties, Rabbi Moshe Moskovitz, the Shliach of Kharkov said.

Rabbi Moskovitz stressed that despite the shellings and bombings in the city the shul is continuing to ensure that daily hundreds of people are evacuated to safety.

The Jewish community is sending hot meals, food, and medicines to needy elderly trapped in shelters and apartments throughout the city.

The shluchim in Kharkov continue to ask everyone to continue praying and adding in good deeds for the safety of the community and all of the Jews and people in Ukraine.  To bomb the world with goodness and light.
