    Venishmartem Me-od Lenafshosaichem is also a mitzva! This could of ended very differently and really should have been co-ordinated with Merkos who could have handled it more carefully! Thank G-D it was sucssessful and you came back safely! Please be more carefull next time! Life is too precious to waste it on a dare…..

    I am personally a son of a shliach so whereever I go I am a shliach, I called up R Polichenko, after hearing the terrible news in Mumbai and wanting to help shluchim in similar dangerous situations, feel cared about, feel uplifted, feel that no matter where they are or how dangerous it is chasidim ain mishpocho, he said sure I can come, and he would even accomodate and feed me, it was a beautiful shabbos, and I am sure any bocher wanting to go help shluchim would really be a nice thing, adding chayos, showing support etc. of course… Read more »
