The death toll from the earthquake that struck Kathmandu has risen to 4138 on Monday, with thousands of people injured and tens of thousands displaced after the disaster.

As of Monday night, just 50 Israelis remain unaccounted for - a drop from an estimated 250 on Sunday. 

Many stranded Israelis have found refuge in the Chabad House in Kathmandu, which is managed by Rabbi Hezki and Chani Lifshitz.

The couple have been providing every refugee with a hot meal despite the difficulty of maintaining order without resources, communications, and electricity. 

Arutz Sheva captured footage from inside the Chabad house (in Hebrew, below), and noted that the building itself is damaged, and currently without power. 

Saturday's earthquake, measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale, was the worst in Nepal in 81 years. Aftershocks Sunday radiated from Kathmandu at 6.7 on the Richter scale and caused hundreds of additional deaths and injuries.
