Pandemic Won’t Stop These Shluchim

Despite the closure of Israel’s borders to foreigners, five shluchim are headed to Yeshivas Toras Emes in Yerushalayim to motivate the younger talmidim in their learning and hanhaga.

Five shluchim set off for Yeshivas Toras Emes in Yerushalayim this week, to help boost the atmosphere and learning amid the pandemic.

Foreigners are still banned from entering Israel, as it slowly opens up following its second lockdown. Nevertheless, the group of shluchim were able to receive special permission to come and join the yeshiva – a clear indicator of how much they are needed.

Like most yeshivos in Israel, Toras Emes students study in a ‘capsule’ program,’ which limits interaction between large groups of students and isolates them from the outside world. In such a setting, the presence of shluchim is all the more necessary.

The group is made up by Mendel Lerner, Dovid Oster, Gedalia Rosenbluh, Sholom Ber Gurary and Schneur Zalman Heber, all who aim to inspire the younger students and motivate them in their learning.
