Mass emigration

We should be encouraging all Jews to leave Ukraine (during WW2 they were very antisemitic , and have not changed much).
I understand that the Shluchim do not necessarily want this, as they will have no “Shlichus” left, but it is the right thing to do.

When I went on Merkos Shlichus to Ukraine, I first stopped in Zhitomir. Mrs. Wilhelm told us that they thought their shlichus would be short, essentially shepherding the remaining Jews of the area to Israel, America, and western Europe. They still try to today to get people to leave, but most Ukrainian Jews are too poor or too entrenched in their current lives to leave.

we need lots of thillim and lots of ahavas yisroel.
if each and everyone of us would discourage maligning another yid and pass on some sordid gossip at least once a day – that would be super powerful.

Do you know that the newly-appointed governor of Dnepetroprovsk is a Jew who is a big supporter of Chabad?
