LUBAVITCH SHECHITA IN SIEDLCE, POLAND

On Monday we did a Lubavitch Shechita in Siedlce! One Rav, one head Mashgiach, Three Shoctim and 4 Mashgichim. There where 3,700 chickens slaughtered. Well the basic process you should know so IM not gonna go in great detail but some basics.
we woke up 5:00 A.M. Monday Morning daven Shachris and left at 6:00 A.M. the CHABAD house to catch a train to Siedlce. We got to there 20 before 8:00 A.M.. we took a taxi to the hotel dropped our stuff off and ate breakfast. We then went to the chicken factory and started setting up shop, and getting dressed. There where a few complications which aren't really important. We basically ended up starting at around 11:00 A.M.

at 10:00 P.M. the factory shuts so we had to be out by then but we where not finished so what do we do with all the rest of the chickens? We cant leave them because it will be Basar Shenis'alem Min HaAyin, we put it into the fridge and got the key from the owner and locked it, we were the last people to leave and we had the key. We had to be back at 6:30 before it opens. We then went to eat supper the first thing since 8 in the morning. Then rabbi Hoffmann decided that we have to go Lizhensk because today is Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk (Polish:Lezajsk) Yarhtzeit, but we have to be back before 6:30 well to make thing short we ended up leaving to Lezajsk at 11:15 the trip was 330 Kilometers. The problem was Yossi had a map and every half hour he saw a similar name and was telling the driver to stop pull over look driving the polish driver nuts. at the end of the day i knew i was right and when we got there i was proven right. we arrived at 3:45 A.M., the town was dead and we didn't know where the cemetery was we pulled into the hotel and the guy knew exactly where it was and he gave us directions which was about 10 minutes away, as we got closer we stated to see signs of life, finally we arrived.

This article is interesting, informative, well-written and uses digital photography well. The article highlights important themes in Yiddishkeit: kashrus, yiras shamayim, achus of Klal Yisrael. Keep up the good work.
