Kosher supervisor from Bnei Brak, Rabbi Israel Album, is stuck in the snow in Istanbul. He was rescued by Turkish soldiers 17 hours later. He was taken to a mosque, spent part of the night and even prayed there in the morning: “They look at me like a weird chicken, but no one said anything.”
Cold weather and snow are expected in Israel, Turkey continues at full speed in the ongoing countries. And only one koshi Brak’taner alive was stranded for a long time in a war in Istanbul by the soldier.
Rabbi Israel (61) came on a mission to run a sugar factory in Istanbul. He set off for the city on the highway with a local driver, Süleyman, at 2:30 p.m. on Monday.
“Suddenly the snowfall continues to continue. They keep going ahead. It turns out that they hit cars after us. So we keep running away and keep coming back. But unsuccessfully.
We sat in the car for about an hour, warming up with the air conditioner. We turned off the engine for a while, fearing that the gas would run out, we would talk calmly for another 6-7 hours. That’s when the cops came and started saving us.”
The rabbi said he was taken to a police station with about two people:
“We’re not given water, we’re not growing food,” he explains. Three hours by truck and airline, then the right time and they brought us to a large mosque there.”
The Utra-Orthodox rabbi was warmly welcomed at Arnavutköy Mosque and offered morning prayers there in the morning. Rabbi, “There were a lot of Turks there. They looked at me like a strange chicken, but no one said anything. said.
He stayed in the mosque from 5 to 11, when the military cars returned their catch by the collar. “I hope he went his way” preferred: “The important thing is that people eat kosher. We strive for them.”
Mandy Hitrik, one of the Istanbul Rabbis, said: “Rabbi Elbaum has always been favored by God. He is not the only Israeli stuck here. He has come to reach you on connecting flights or on the roads. I keep getting phone calls. We are trying to get people to eat kosher.”
