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.

Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.
Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!
