In the background of the shelling: the renovation of the synagogue in Niazin has been completed

The Jewish community renovated a synagogue near the site of the second rebbe in the Chabad Hasidic lineage in the cemetery in the city of Niazhin in the Chernigov district of eastern Ukraine. The work was done in the last period during the war and ended with no casualties

On the holiday of the deliverance of the second Chabad rebbe, the renovation of the synagogue was completed near his Zion in Niazhin in Ukraine, the middle rebbe, the eldest son of the old rebbe was born following the blessing of the Maggid of Mezrich, the rabbi of Baal HaTanya, and was named after him. He is the one who determined the place of the Hasids in the town of Lubavitch, where he arrived together with thousands of Hasids on the 8th day of Elul 1633 while Prince Chekhovsky, who ruled the town, ordered his workers to cut down his forests to build houses for the Rebbe and the Hasids.

Upon his arrival, the middle rebbe told the Chassidim that as a child, the elder rebbe had studied in the town of Lubavitch with Rabbi Yishchar Ber of Lubavitch, adding that the old rebbe appeared to him and asked him to settle in Lubavitch. During his time, Chassidism continued to grow throughout White Russia and Lithuania, and says The number of travelers to the Hasidic court kept increasing, while the number of Chabad followers tripled.

The middle rebbe was banned following the whistle-blowing during the Sukkot holiday of 2017, and he was released after investigations and tests in which the investigators realized that he was being treated as a false plot. On the day of his release on the second day of his imprisonment, he was released from prison. This date has been set for generations as the holiday of redemption.

The renovation of the synagogue was commanded by Rabbi Schnior Zalman Deitsch, the messenger and responsible for the holy places in Haditch and Niazin, while the work was done in the last period, during the war, taking advantage of the fact that because of this the number of people coming to the place was significantly less and the renovation work did not interfere with the routine there, as the community posted on Facebook.

The cost of the renovation, which included a complete renovation, strengthening of the structure, establishment of water infrastructure, furniture, air conditioning and much more, cost 50,000 dollars, some of which was donated by the governor Mr. Yitzhak Miralshuili and the other part by Jews from all over the world who joined the cause.

Last Shabbat, Parshat Vitza, T. Keslo – the birthday and the day of the departure of the Middle Rebbe, about 30 Jews from Niazin and the surrounding area stayed at the place with Rabbi Deitch hosting them and taking care of them for a full meal. The synagogue was inaugurated in a modest but moving ceremony in which the chairman of the Jewish Federation in Ukraine, Rabbi Meir Stambler, took part and set the mezuzah at the entrance of the complex.
