Photos: Kapparos in Moscow Before Sunrise


Hundreds of Jews began streaming into the yard of the Central Marina Roscha Shul in Moscow in the wee hours of this morning. A team of shochtim, who were appointed by the Chief Rabbinate of Russia, awaited them.

After shacharis, many went over to the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Berl Lazar to ask him for lekach. About four hundred students from the Chabad Educational Institutions of Moscow were among them.

Tonight, when Yom Kippur will descend upon Moscow, there will be dozens of minyanim throughout the city. In the central Marina Roscha shul alone, the gabbaim are expecting over two thousand people.
