Rabbi Shimon Freundlich

Beijing Chief Rabbi recognizes medical staff in Israel and the world over, Jews and non-Jews, for putting their lives on the line to save others, and gives important safety tips.

In a pre-Shabbat video on Friday, Rabbi Shimon Freundlich, Chief Rabbi of Beijing, adamantly warns religious Jews against participating in minyanim – prayer quorums – during the COVID-19 pandemic, among other important advice to help people stay safe and healthy.

The virus doesn’t differentiate between religious and non-religious, Jew and non-Jew, he says, urging viewers to “learn from the virus” and show courtesy to others and special appreciation to health care workers around the world.

URGENT: Help Israelis Fight Coronavirus!

Donate to the Israel Coronavirus Relief Fund. The deadly virus is surging in Israel. While all Israelis are affected, the poor, elderly and seriously ill are highly at risk.

Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers are in danger. At this time, Coronavirus poses a greater threat to Israel than acts of terror.

Israelis need your help. Food and medical supplies can be scarce. The country is in near total lockdown. People are in panic. Funds will be distributed where needed most. Help Israel today!
