Corona’s restrictions this year posed a difficult challenge for Chabad emissaries.
Every year, the shluchim operate ‘open synagogues’ all over the country, which allow everyone to find their place in a synagogue without selling places and with close guidance and accompaniment throughout the prayer – so that even those who do not find their place in a regular synagogue can feel at home.
This year, due to the dramatic jump in morbidity, Chabad youths ‘broke their heads’ how to cope. The challenge was twofold: how to take care of the hundreds of thousands who will have difficulty coming to the synagogue – Corona patients, isolated or other circumstances, and how to open synagogues with all restrictions .
After a brainstorming session at the Shluchim’s headquarters, it was decided to publish a booklet, “All Vows and Closing,” a single prayer, alongside a magazine about the holiest day for the Jewish people.
Combined with a personalized honey cake, an estimate was distributed to nearly half a million families across the country.
In addition, at record speed, about a thousand Chabad emissaries scattered throughout the country were able to quickly organize the construction of open synagogues in an outline approved by the Ministry of Health.
“The presence in the territory of the shluchim,” said the chairman of the Chabad youth, Rabbi Yosef Yitzhak Aharonov, “proved itself with the rapid organization of the establishment of synagogues in the outline in question and with the unprecedented distribution of personal esteem with which masses could pass Yom Kippur.”
