Rabbi Binyomin Edery of Chabad Tokyo Japan, is working non stop to spread the 7 Noahide laws. He recently printed 300,000 cards in Japanese, with the 7 laws, and a short explanation. The cards also explain the prophecy of the Rebbe Melech Hamoshiach, that Moshiach is on His way, and every good deed that we do, in the realm of goodness and kindness can bring Moshiach. Interestingly, people have shown great interest in these cards and have asked to study more about this topic. Japan is not a religious country. The religion is the Yen, a.k.a. materialism. That is why they are so thirsty to learn about the meaning of life, and their obligations towards Hashem. The card was copied from the Noahide laws cards originally made by Dr. Esther Reich.
Kosher Chicken and Kosher Beef, produced by Jewish community Chabad Tokyo Japan
After many years of tireless efforts, Chabad Tokyo Japan succeeded in doing Shechita in Japan.
2 years ago, Rabbi Binyomin Edery, director of Chabad Tokyo Japan, brought a shochet (slaughterer) from N.Y. to do the first Shechita in Japan. Since then, many shechitas were done, including slaughtering of beef, this past Passover.
This is an incredible breakthrough for Jews in Japan. Until local shechita was started, poultry was imported from the States. Usually not so fresh, after, sitting in freezers sometimes for months.
Meat, is still a problem to import, because of different viruses. Now, Thank G-d, there is chicken and meat available for all the Jews of Japan.
Big international stores such as National Azabu Supermarket, and Nissin Supermarket, are selling the strictly kosher chickens, and with great pride.
A very big hit in the supermarkets, are the kosher chicken on skewers, they are called in Japanese “ Kosher Yakitori”. People enjoy them greatly, because it is very easy to prepare. Just to take them out of the package, put in a saucepan or grill, seasoned as one likes, and it comes out delicious.
Chabad Tokyo Japan did a few promotions for kosher food, in the National Azabu Supermarket including the popular kosher “Yakitori”. There is always a very positive response from the people.

Yud Beis – Yud Gimmel Tamuz Gathering in Chabad Tokyo Japan
Last Thursday, on Yud Beis Tamuz, Chabad Jewish Community Tokyo Japan made a big celebration in honor of the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Shneersohn. The first emissary to be sent to open a Chabad House in the world, was sent by Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Shneersohn.
A festive meal was served, music on clarinet by Rabbi Haim Glick. Lots of stories of the Previous Rebbe, and words of Torah were said.
On the 12th of Tammuz of 1927, the sixth Lubavitcher rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak was officially granted release from his sentence of exile to Kastroma in the interior of Russia.
Twenty-seven days earlier, the Rebbe had been arrested by agents of the GPU and the Yevsektzia (“Jewish Section” of the Communist Party) for his activities to preserve Judaism throughout the Soviet empire and sentenced to death, G-d forbid. International pressure forced the Soviets to commute the sentence to exile and, subsequently, to release him completely. The actual release took place on Tammuz 13, and Tammuz 12-13 is celebrated as a “festival of liberation” by the Chabad-Lubavitch community.
Tammuz 12 is also Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak’s birthday.
