Jews are so open to doing mitvas now wouldnt time be better spent doing mivtazayim in thier own communitys ? isnt this what the Rebbe said the mivtzayim we do here will protect the yiddin in eretz yisroel! This is an honest question. I know there are answers like we need to show our support etc. How do you think that support looks when you board the plane back to your house in America? there are shluchim in israel this is thier job. the Rebbe wants you to do yours. teflin mezuza neshek. The rebbe was very clear. No ambiguity.… Read more »

https://www.lubavitch.com/remembering-summer-1956/ In the spring of 1956, just five years after the Rebbe accepted the leadership of Chabad-Lubavitch, tragedy struck Kfar Chabad, the Chabad village near Tel Aviv. A group of Fedayeen terrorists from Egypt infiltrated the village’s vocational training school and murdered five young students and their teacher as they stood in prayer in their classroom. Kfar Chabad, established in 1948, was then a fledgling village struggling to build its infrastructure. Its residents, predominantly refugees who survived Stalin and Hitler, were hoping to establish their lives anew. The massacre traumatized them, shaking their confidence in the village’s future. They were… Read more »

Seems that rip was the exception! not on 67, 73, 82 maalot etc did the Rebbe ever send again. That was clearly a very specific Hoaras sha. otherwise that would have happen again. i dont mean to belabor a point and im not trying to put anyone down. Bur honestly Shluchim have a sechus to serve a community designated to them. didnt they lose a weeks time getting people in thier own communitys who are looking to be inspired to put on tefilin do mitvas come to shul farbreng. As the Rebbe directed under similar conditions many times?

You are 💯 correct 👍

After 9-11 ppl were desperately looking for guidance. The hearts are open and while is nice what they do, is better to stay in your cities , USA also is not having an easy time so much hate and propaganda, better collect money and send it and make new people take on mitzvahs and ensure the people in your areas feel also they are cared for and you really see them like family with this achdus . Many ppl are by themselves full of struggles and looking for a kind word .

Yeah, but they are there to give chizuk in these really hard times, and I’m sure they each asked their mashpia.

Every Jew in the world needs Chizuk! The Rebbe sent you to give chizuk to the people in your community! There are shluchim in Israel who are dancing with soldiers. Dance with the people in your community give them chizuk!!!

The Jews in diaspora are desperately looking and wanting to do a Mitzvah Teffilin anything spiritually. I was after this very successful and well know businessman to put on Teffilin for many years and he always came up with another excuse, today when I called him he came to my office within an hour and put on Teffilin with tears in his eyes.
I agree with your message

Seems that was a Horas sha. Clearly it never happened Again. Thats not an answer to the contrary shows it was a onetime event. Im not trying to belittle anyone but im not a shliach and people that never would put on tefilin are rolling up their sleeves. that all im saying we shouldnt lose site of the mission. I write this with a full heart no bad intended. I wish the shluchim would satrt a huge tefilin campaign and neshek with bilboards ads etc.

I must say this trip seems a little misguided. The Rebbe never advocated UJA solidarity trips for Shluchim which is what this looks like. I have no doubt they meant well, but I agree with some of the other comments there is so much needed here in their , Mocom Hashlichus. I suppose when everyone in your community light candles and puts on tefilin maybe just maybe but Likley The rebbe would say to just do more.

Every Yid is a Shliach

What do you mean “I’m not a shalich” maybe just lead by example and after work go do all the above said tasks. And to answer your question I’m a shalich in isreal and I can’t explain you how much it empowers the nation when foreign religions leaders come and show support. Very often ppl do Mitzvot or learn with me only because I’m speaking a fluent English! And regarding the communities abroad, the confidence and connection each Mikurav feels and often will be very proud for year to come to say “My Rabbi so and so” went into the… Read more »

Obviously Shluchim made sure they are not neglecting their mission at home. On the contrary they are doing a double duty by representing their communities with the warmth and comfort they are bringing to so many that are hurting. They went for a few days and accomplished so much in the holy land AND in their mokom hashlichus. I’d reckon the other times you mentioned where the Rebbe did not send shluchim explicitly could be because Chabad was more established/equipped on the ground, I don’t see how/where you infer that shluchim shouldn’t be going!? Bizarre logic. Your “question” either comes… Read more »

They went for 3 days
October 25, 2023 9:13 pm

They went for 3 days, they went with hundreds of thousands of dollars collected from the communities to help people and shluchim on the front that they gave Tzedakah galore and many more supplies that were collected from their communities to be the Shliach on their behalf.

Before you point fingers, ask yourself are you maximizing your potential where the aibishter put you?

Kol Hakobod to the shluchim who went and helped so many people in 3 days.
