The delegation of 27 Chabad Shluchim from the US and other countries continues its journey of strengthening in the Holy Land, in the aftermath of the shocking attack by Hamas and the current war.
On Tuesday morning, the Shluchim visited the city of Sderot, which is one of the most targeted areas in the country, enduring one of the harshest blows during the surprise attack, with the infiltration of terrorists who murdered dozens of the city’s residents.
The Shluchim were welcomed by Rabbi Moshe Zev Pizem and his family, Shluchim in Sderot who work tirelessly and selflessly. The delegation heard about the devoted work of the Sderot Shluchim, who are dedicated and committed to their mission, providing both spiritual and material assistance to the residents of the city.
During the visit, the members of the delegation heard firsthand accounts of the terrible attack on Simchas Torah, and the miracle the Shluchim themselves had in escaping the terror.
The trip is being led by Chabad of Israel Emergency National Response Center, part of Tzeirei Agudas Chabad, headed by Rabbi Yosef Aharonov. The Chabad of Israel Emergency National Response Center not only provides humanitarian assistance to soldiers and affected families, but also initiates visits by leaders from around the world. The director of the Emergency National Response Center, Rabbi Levi Mendelson, is closely accompanying each part of the visit.
The members of the delegation include Chabad Shluchim from all over the US, as well as from Canada and Australia. Among them are shluchim from Florida, New Jersey, Texas, California, New Orleans, Illinois, Iowa, New York and Arizona.
The trip was organized by Chabad Shluchim Rabbi David Eliezrie from California, Rabbi Yitzchak Wolff from Chicago, and Rabbi Yossi Biston from Florida. The trip was organized with the assistance of Fleischman Peles Productions.
