    No Banquet for Bochurim

    Pier 94 in Manhattan went through an extreme make-over ahead of the gala banquet this evening of the international Kinus Hashluchim. A Merkos official tells COLlive: "No - no bochurim at all by the banquet. There will be major security and anyone who did not pay for the pass will not get it." Full Story, Photos

    Next time you beg us to go on shlichus we’ll have to thing twice.

    To #5. Know your place. This is desiged for shluchim (and those they wish to bring to impress by seeing or being seen), not potential shluchim. If you feel used, then you obviously did not go into this with the right intention. The goal of anyone in or going into shlichus, is the shlichus, by the mishalayach. Hafotzas Hamayonos Chutzo. If you don’t get attention, thanks, peer-validation etc, it’s like: Someone who studies medicine because he loves the field and especially helping others from sickness.

    Whats being forgoteen is that bochurim who do work for Merkos (i.e. MyShliACH, Merkos Shlichus, Pesach Shlichus etc.) were basically promised passes. Not to mention Bochurim whose parents are Shluchim and would like to attend with their father and Balebatim.

    However I just would like to point out that even though I am dismayed at not being able to attend (last year I attended being that I am on Shlichus, and this year I also do myShliACH) I would not being going on SHlichus based on my privilges at the Kinus.
    I go on Shlichus for the Rebbe, and the Rebbe only!

    Rabbi Moshe Bryski, said: “There is so much fragmentation in the world today,” he said. “From the economic situation to international tensions, there is fear and disillusionment looming in people’s hearts. Now, more than ever, people are looking to connect, to unify around principles of absolute goodness and truth.”
