The following letter was written by a parent:
Sending my oldest to Cincinnati for shiur Alef was a tough move, yet I knew that’s what’s best for him to be completely surrounded with Torah and chasidishkait 24 hours a day, to grow and to blossom into a true Chossid, what more could I ask for?
I prepared my son for the struggles to the best of my ability, but I’ve never been to Yeshiva and I hardly knew what to expect.
Yet I was pleasantly surprised the Yeshiva staff were so warm, his friends so inclusive and his teachers so understanding.
However I still felt that things weren’t perfect, there was something my son felt was lacking in Yeshiva.
All that changed after just 3 days when the Shluchim showed up, their energy so palpable yet their warmth so genuine, their understanding of a new Bochur in Mesivta made the struggles so much easier.
As a new mother, I haven’t heard much about Shluchim other than they’re a group of older Bachurim volunteering their year but I soon came to realize their quintessential roles in yeshiva is what makes a Bochur’s year perfect.
From the trips to the Mivtzas, from extracurricular activities to learning one on one, this is what the bachurim need, to have someone to talk to at night or for an early morning Chavrusa, Shluchim are available 24/7.
I would like to thank the Shluchim for all that they’ve done for Chinuch and the role models they serve to the next generation of Temimim.
The Cincinnati Shluchim are having an end-of-the-year fundraiser, please help them reach their goal.
Even if you don’t have a son there, even if you don’t have any children in yeshiva, know that your help will be instrumental in raising the Chayolei Beis Dovid of Dor Hashvii, who’ll do their utmost to bring about Moshiach speedily Bimheira Biyameinu Mamash!
