Moscow to Get First Mitzvah Mobile

Moscow will soon be receiving its first Chabad “Mitzvah Mobile,” according to an August 20th report on the Chabad.org website.

The large recreational vehicles – mobile Jewish educational and outreach centers for areas not serviced by Chabad Houses – are visible in cities all around the world, but this will be the first one in the Russian capital. The first such vehicle took to the road in New York City in 1974, as a means of reaching secular Jews and introducing them to Lubavitcher-style Chassidism.

Chabad hopes to have the vehice up and running by the High Holidays in September to distribute Shabbat candles, teach small sections of the torah and get Jewish men to don tefillin.
