    Dear shlomO I don’t think there is words to describe what you have done in Africa, you have reachedbthe Jews in 20 countries. May you go from strength to strength! From your beloved friend who is writing this from his IPAD

    As a bochur who went to africa for pesach. I tell you the amazing work the bentolilas do for the jewish community throughout africa. Someone asked me when we where there, “Why does a rabbi in Congo care about the jews in the whole africa’?

    Shliach from the older generation

    Shliach from the older generation

    Shlomo’s mesiras nefesh to rent a gondola to go bring Menorahs to yidden, is like the first generation of Shluchim whose selfless devotion to the Rebbe knows no boundaries… He is not like the new 23’s whose Shlichus is all about Ipads etc. He is truly a gem in the Rebbe’s crown of African Shlichus…
