Recently i was traveling on a bus from Boston to NY. Girl next to me was Jewish so we started a conversation. She told me that she travels a lot with her Reform youth group and visits different reform temples in Europe. Usually they also stop in in a Chabad House. She said she doesn’t like the services because she is never sure what to do but when she gets invited for Shabbat Dinner…she loves it. “No matter where you are they always serve the same food in the same order and switch plates at the same time.” She told… Read more »

in the lameds, encouraging people to go on shlichus, I seem to recall that he said the shluchim would eat the same food as the local people eat… and isn’t it true!!

You wrote: “Most of the shluchim today have a much better life than people in Crown Heights.” That is very likely true spiritually. However, if you were referring to the physical side of things (since this article is about food), you have no idea what you are talking about in most instances. I’ll grant you this: in the places where most shluchim live they do not experience the rudeness, pushiness, “no time for you,” chasing life (instead of living life) and grimyness that is characteristic of life in the boroughs of NY. But, then again, the people of NY seem… Read more »

Well written!! I can understand that to the casual observer life on Shlichus seems fun and “out of the ghetto” BH it is incredibly fulfilling and the best thing anyone could do with their life, it’s a life of giving, doing, one of personal growth and development and a wonderful example to our children.. But if you havent experienced it you have no idea what its like to live hundreds if not many thousands of miles away from your family and have your children not know or even barely see their grandparents and relatives (bc of cost, health and time… Read more »

Where is BH? i could say that its hard to grow up as a shliach20 years ago in brazil there was barelly kosher, BH with the Rebbe’s Bracha and the effort of the community we have several kosher places including Kosher McDonalds.

Personally i think that there is nothing more fullfiling that to be a shliach.

If anybody ever needs anything in Brazil or Argentina i will be more then glad to help.

Sure, people travel around the world, expecting Chabad to offer them free meals and sometimes even free accomodation – and then they feel they have the right to criticize the food??? Ugh. Please. I’m standing and cooking all day for visitors who sometimes don’t even have the mentchlichkeit to let me know they’ll be coming, at least be grateful!
