As Tzeirei Hashluchim celebrated last week at their own Grand Banquet, they were privileged to see two feature films about their fellow Young Shluchim and the impact they had.
Following the theme of the ‘Young Kinus,’ the stories highlighted how through acting as a Dugma Chaya, simply doing the right thing that is in line with the high standards of a Shliach, they ended up having a tremendous impact on their surroundings. Often, these occurrences take place without one even realizing at the time.
After each video, the courageous Young Shluchim each got up to speak live to their peers, sharing the personal side of what happened to them with their friends in the room. Even their hoarse voices from three days of chayus and excitement at the Kinus didn’t faze them or the crowd that hung on every word.
First came the story from Yisroel Silverman from Dobbs Ferry, NY. He and his older brother Shneur were getting picked up after a long day at school, and just wanted to go home. Hearing of a man in need, however, they choose to take the time to daven at his bedside instead.
What happened next changed their perspective on their important role on Shlichus.
Next came Yossi Lipskier from Fountain Hills, AZ. After being told that he can’t play ball with his Tzitzis, Yossi is pleasantly surprised by what happens next.
The impact of this seemingly small occurrence shocks him, his parents, and the entire community.
The videos were produced by the Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim for their Grand Banquet culminating the Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim. Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim is a joint project of The Shluchim Office and Merkos L’inyanei Chinuch and is underwritten by The Shluchim Office.
Videos were produced and directed by Mendy Ceitlin and Berel Bendet, filmed by Berry Cohen and Alex Bleeker, and edited by Berry Cohen.
