Wow! Did accepting the challenge from a student that he’ll put on tefillin if he joins him in skydiving, lead to this??

Yasher Koach Chaplain Estrin!
August 4, 2015 2:31 pm

When my husband, Yeshaya, served as the only frum Air Force Chaplain in Europe during the 1970’s, he was not permitted to have a beard. As a reserve chaplain, he was ordered to take off his yalmulke. I am so happy that the situation has changed for you. I am confident that you will make a real Kiddush Hashem! Mrs. Penina Metal

Wow!

That’s truly amazing, what a Kiddush Hashem and Lubavitch.

Always an inspiration!

Eli has been a Dugma Chaya since he was a bochur.
I was proud to call him a friend, even before he completed this incredible venture.
Keep rocking Eli!
