A new kosher supermarket opened in Ukraineâ€™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 â€œPerlynaâ€ 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.
