News Brief


A new kosher supermarket opened in Ukraine’s capital.

The store opened in Kiev last week under the auspices of the city’s Chabad-Lubavitch community.

It is located on the property of the “Perlyna” Ohr Avner Day School headed by Rabbi Jonathan Markowitz, the Lubavitch emissary who leads the local community.

Markowitz told JTA that the store is not a for-profit venture that is trying to keep prices under control for consumers with low incomes.
