Slovakia’s small Jewish community of 3,000 has said it is relying on kosher for Pesach food provisions from across the border in Austria and Hungary, despite extensive lockdowns in those countries owing to the coronavirus.
Chief Rabbi Baruch Myers said he hoped every Jewish family could have a seder and observe Passover at home,
with kosher wine and matzah being delivered to homes, but admitted it was “quite a challenge” logistically.
“We are still working out the details,” he said. “The bad news is that we are dependent upon Austria and, to some extent, Hungary. The good news is that it is probable shipments can be made from those countries.”
