    Very touching

    My two favorite lines were….

    “a shliach was able to purchase an overdue gift for his wife”..(and I’m not a wife or a husband (or a future wife 😉 )

    “We have no organizational expenses other than the 44-cent stamp.”

    Keep up the good work.

    Just one thing that sounded confusing. I’m pretty certain that when It said “once a month checks are sent to those that applied” it means sent to different shluchim each month…not that they’re sending to the same ppl each month.

    The point of the article is not to praise the Friedman family though everyone knows they are definitely praiseworthy. Hopefully everyone reading this article will now be aware to look for the Yad L’shliach cards every time they are in those stores and purchase them. The quicker those cards are bought, the faster a thousand dollars will accrue and the funds will be distributed to the shluchim. The shluchim need us and every single dollar we can spare.

    Great Work

    is one allowed to use maaser money towards this since it is going to shluchims personal needs??

    Nice!

    Nice!

    I’m delighted to see that this project is thriving. Boruch HaShem.
    My brothers received the now-famous Yad L’shliach gift and I can’t tell you how meaningful he felt it was! Not just the money (which is of course nice,) but also the knowledge that people are giving of their own meager earnings to help shluchim….. Very, very nice.

    (Btw, the writer needs to learn to use commas properly,,,)

    Yes. As many shluchim today don’t have money for food. That would be kosher maaser d’oraisa. Thank you.

    Can you give to a poor person who uses it for his personal needs? can one give to a hacnosas Kallah fund????

    The answer is obvious.

    Get a free CD of Avraham Fried with brothers Shlomo and Yosi, plus nephews, when you donate to Yad L;Shliach online.

    A beautiful CD–well worth the donation,

    Someone should nominate them (maybe just Shlomo Friedman) as a hero in that UJC jewish community heroes thing, and everyone vote for them!!!

    which one is shlomo?

    which one is shlomo?

    In the picture at the top of the article, i recognize manis and avremel of course, but which one is shlomo, and who are the two others?

    Thank You

    Thank You

    We are shluchim and were $1000 short on our mortgage – we didn’t know where it would come from. Yad L’shliach was our miracle for that month!!

    Please give what you can. The econamy today affects everyone especially shluchim who do live on a steady income.

    Shlomo is far right. Next to him Eli (Elik) and far right is Benzion. Yossi is not in the picture.

    Where is Rabbi Yochonon?

    Where is Rabbi Yochonon?

    How can you write an article about Yad l”shliach and not mention the shliach Yochonon Friedman from S. Cruz who as I understand is very involved in the fund. So to Rabbi Yochonon we say keep up the good work.

    As a shliach who received this gift unexpectedly one day it must be added that besides the money being a miraculous help, knowing the achdus and chesed behind it was also very uplifting.

    Wow, What a beautiful campaign. Genius idea to get the local stores involved..this can and should be developed in the local stores in every frum/lubav. community.
