Following the grand opening of its new Jewish Community Center, the Jewish Community of Smolensk in Russia last week celebrated the opening of the city’s first ever kosher store on the premises of the new center.
More after the jump.
Mr. Gershom Gulitsky, the store manager said,
I have been receiving many phone calls from Jews and non-Jews alike, who have seen my phone number on the store truck as it drives through the city and are interested to know all about our new specialty kosher products. I hope my store helps people who want to keep kosher at home.
The store was assisted by the “Super Kosher” company in Moscow which imports and distributes kosher food products throughout Russia.
