The standard package, NumberTheory`NumberTheoryFunctions` contains a
function, ChineseRemainder.

<<NumberTheory`NumberTheoryFunctions` ?ChineseRemainderTheorem

"ChineseRemainderTheorem[list1, list2] gives the minimal nonnegative
integer solution of Mod[r, list2] == list1. The solution is unique
modulo the LCM of list2. ChineseRemainderTheorem[list1, list2] is an
obsolete function, superceded by ChineseRemainder[list1, list2]."
