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.

Why was the Aron Kodesh not opened for Krias HaTorah? Instead, there was a bang on the bimah. Everyone turned to the mara d’asra Harav Yosef Yeshaya Braun on the bimah.

New question on AskTheRav.com: Most minyonim daven very fast and I’m a slow davener. I’m familiar with the Rebbe’s horaah that one needs only to begin with the minyan, and doesn’t have to run after them. See the rest of the question, and Rabbi Yosef Yeshaya Braun‘s response • Full Story
