"Mitzvah Tank" is back to Ukraine

Let's do it together with you!

  • MITZVAH TANK

  • Mitzvah tank is a vehicle used by the Orthodox Jewish practitioners of Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidism as a portable "educational and outreach center" and "mini-synagogue" (or "minagogue") to reach out to non-observant and alienated Jews. Mitzvah tanks have been commonplace on the streets of New York City since 1974. Today they are found all over the globe in countries where Chabad is active. Nowadays Mitzvah Tank has reached Ukraine also. Young rabbis are trying to bring a spark of Jewish identity to every Jew they meet on their way.

    Last two years our vehicles trailed the planes of Ukraine. The trip, organized by the Federation of Jewish Communities of Ukraine, lasted about one month and spanned 50 Ukrainian small cities and towns.

    The expedition generated a lot of interest in the Jewish communities of the cities visited as well as among local residents.

    While visiting a city, the young rabbis would engage in conversations with the curious on-lookers, both Jewish and not, providing them with rich information about Jewish history, culture and traditions. They would also welcome people inside the mobile synagogue, showing them around and explaining to them various details of religious services and symbols of Judaism.

    "The motto of our trip is a wise Jewish saying that declares ‘Even a little lights dispels a lot of darkness,’ and we tried to light sparks of interest and understanding in those we met," - young rabbi Mendel Wolff concluded.
