When we travel abroad, we often rely on Chabad for a kosher meal. The Chabad rabbis and rebbetzins that I have encountered have always been so happy to provide a meal, a shul and a place for Jewish travelers, and have asked nothing in return. So, here’s a thought, next time you plan a trip with a visit to a Chabad, get in touch with the rabbi or rebbetzin prior to your trip and ask them if there is anything they need or want that you can bring along with you on your visit. You might be surprised how something that we consider insignificant or easy to obtain would be a welcomed luxury for them.
