Thousands Express Their Judaism in Front of the Capitol

June 3, 2008
As thousands of people descended on the National Mall for the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Israel @ 60 celebration, a team of Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries from Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland, fanned among the crowd to distribute Shabbat candles and help Jewish men don tefillin. Among the estimated 1,000 people who dropped by the “Do a Mitzvah for Israel” booth coordinated by Rabbi Sholom Raichik, director of Chabad-Lubavitch of Upper Montgomery County, was Israeli Ambassador to the United States Sallai Meridor.
