Don’t say anything negative about Mivtzoyim. Several times, bochurim had not-so-positive experiences in outreach with me, and I eventually, in my own sweet time, became a full-fledged Lubavitcher B”H.

That was so interesting! Thank you!

t brought happy memories of when I did that with my friends many years ago. May I add that it seems most appropriate for guys to approach the guys and for girls and women to approach the girls… the girls would feel more comfortable.

Great. Doesn’t change the fact that Mivtzoyim training should be a thing. On the job experience gets 70% of it done. The other 30% (how to approach, how to react, how to be confident, etc.) really should be taught by schools and Yeshivas. A simple once per year course is enough. I’m saying that as a successful bachur-shliach who had to learn how to do mivtzoyim the hard way.

Very Interesting!

what a great idea! To see how other people feel about doing mitzvot in the street!
But didn’t The Rebbe say that boys should teach boys and girls teach girls?! It is not very tzniut for boys to speak to girls on the street, Let the girls speak to girls!

indeed, mivtzoyim doesn’t just give another Jew the opportunity to do a mitzva. It trains the chossid himself to:
-always see anyone as possibly Jewish no matter what he looks like
-to confront fear and social awkwardness when dealing with the unknown
-to always act like a mentch
