The South American country of Peru hosted a local kosher shechita run.
Organized by the family of the late Shliach Rabbi Shneor Blumenfeld, the shechita was made possible by shochet Eliyahu Ezagui, who traveled to the country from Crown Heights especially for the shechita run.
The shechita run included a large number of cattle and sheep that will enable thousands of Jewish visitors to Peru and Jews of the local community to eat locally sourced kosher meat.
A certified shochet, Ezagui has done dozens of such Shchita runs for Chabad Houses worldwide, including two recent trips to Belize and Jamaica. Animals are slaughtered with the highest kosher standards to ensure that every Jewish visitor will have kosher meat to eat.
