    Zalmy,
    You are truly one of the most selfless people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

    I second this letter all the way!
    As a camp director and Shliach myself, I benefited a tremendous amount from Zalmy’s advice and practical guidance. I am extremely inspired. Thank you Moshe for speaking up!

    I guess this is the time to give credit where credit is due to the many shluchim who don’t get recognition for the numerous children they have adopted as their own..

    A shliach near me adopted TWINS at age 6 (after an extremely turbulent past) and have been living by them ever since.
    today they are in yeshiva and seminary in israel.. (of course paid for by the shluchim who have a large family of their own)

    and im sure this one example amongst many…

    My brother Sdbk an overseas shliach adopted a teen girl when he was too young to have a teenage child.Very busy doing his shlichus we weren’t told of this new addition.But when his familyy picture included a teenage girl in pants,we found out her gradmother who was left to raise her was going to send her to the church.So my brother and sister in law as usual did whatever needed done and adopted her!!they should have only nachas!

    You guys are so inspiring! I had the privilege of meeting the Kudans a few summers ago. I was so impressed by how well they treated the counselors they hired! You greeted us so warmly and I’ll always remember that!

    My shluchim took me in and have provided a home for me for the past two years, they took me in with no hesitation and made it clear from the beginning that I could participate (or not) in whatever I wanted. Before them, I had been homeless living on couches and in basements since my family situation was abusive. Thank G-d for Shluchim!

    B”H This is so inspiring to hear. I think this may just be my inspiration for the year. What a selfless, non-elitest, kind, and generous act of love. The teenager’s mother, will no-doubt, be your guardian angle. It for sure meant so much to her to know, on her death bed, that the love of her life will be in good hands. At that moment she was so helpless, and while she was physically dying, her immense love for her child was brining on. You allowed her to die in peace. Thank you for being such an inspiration.
