When we came to Lubavitch for the last days of Pesach, I saw an unusual scene. The parking lot was full. I then realized it was Sunday and they were all attending church. The building looks quite delapitated, but apparently it is functioning and has some kind of a landmark designation that makes renovations problematic.

Unlike in Moscow, Ladas had a respective representation here. The Soviet era ones were easy to spot, but there were also more modern models, such as this 4x4.

A little after noon the parking lot had emptied out, and Lubavitch was back to it's more normal self.

The cars apparently also have a landmark designation :D

Imagine, those goyim have membership in a legit Lubavitch church!

I wonder if the CAI-TLV airport issues are related to the fact that AFAIK until 2021 the flights were Air Sinai which used a different system.

Are you allowed to sleep on the floor, ? :P

Based on the overall experience with EgyptAir, I doubt whether anyone would bother you for doing that.

Well, not exactly. The pictures attached to the article are from different times (people that were there when we weren't there) and one of the pictures doesn't look like it's from Lubavitch at all (I don't recognize the shul - maybe it's Smolensk where some spent the first days of Pesach).

Russian Dvar Malchus. Perfect bound vs stapled for the rest of the world. Before Pesach was printed on white paper, now they switched to cheaper paper (but still better than the flimsy stock in the rest of the world) and the kicker is the price: 100 Rubles vs $3.50.

I forgot to post the images from my son's visit to the CAI duty free (comments in English are his):















And the one DS ended up buying (when I asked him why he chose that, he responded that the others are obviously just propaganda, and for that he has better sources):
