Jewish Russian Was Aboard Missing Malaysian Airlines Plane

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

One of the passengers aboard the Malaysian Airlines plane that vanished is a Jewish Russian national, Nikolai Brodskii, 43, of the Siberian city of Irkutsk, whose name appears on the missing plane’s passenger manifest.

He is a husband and father of sons aged 17 and 11.

The flight, with 239 passengers on board, disappeared Saturday while flying over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam. No distress signal was issued, and it is believed the plane had changed course and turned back toward Kuala Lumpur, from where it had taken off.

It was later discovered that two passengers boarded the plane using stolen passports.

The Financial Times reported Monday that the tickets for those two passengers were bought by an Iranian middleman.

Matzot Back To Egypt

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

        Matzot produced in Israel will be heading back to Egypt, where the Israelites first produced matzah in their haste to leave ancient Egypt.

 

         In addition to Egypt, Matzot Aviv will also be shipping matzot to such new destinations as Ethiopia, Singapore and via Singapore to Malaysia and Indonesia. The company is expecting more than $2 million in sales of matzot and other kosher for Passover items, a 10 percent increase over 2006.

 

         David Wolf, Managing director of Aviv told Ynet Internet newsthat they export to over 40 countries from the U.S. and Canada, to Ukraine and African states, as well. “The company is expanding its export targets this Passover and is providing matzot to all Jewish communities, however small they may be.” The Bnei Brak factory has been working around-the-clock to supply the international demand. Matzot Avivowned by the Wolf family is marking its 120th year of operation.
