This year, the Republic of Moldova was shining with the beautiful lights of the Chanukah Menorahs. Thousands of Jews were exposed to the holiday, and to the meaning of Chanukah.
More than twenty events took place all over the country, in the cities of Belts, Bender, Tiraspol and the capital city, Kishinev.
Programs for adults, students and children took place. Senior homes and offices were visited. Thousands of doughnuts and hundreds of Menorahs were distributed by the Menorah lightings.
This was all coordinated through the young Chabad Shluchim, under the guidance of Rabbi Mendy and Chaya Mushka Akselrod. The public menorah was lit by the Chief Rabbi of Moldova, Rabbi Yosef Abelsky.
“We were able to light many dark corners in Moldova in places we didn’t reach for a while” concludes Rabbi Axelrod.

The reason that Jews have prayed for thousands of years at the Western Wall is that this is the closest they could get to Temple Mount and the site of the Holy of Holies. The Western Wall is not part of the temple itself but merely a supporting wall for Temple Mount. No Jew ever thought that this would serve forever as a replacement for the Temple • Full Story
