A group of Askonim and Shluchim led by campaign chairman Reb Yosef Michelashvili are leading the annual fundraiser for the Shluchim Office which will take place this Wednesday, Chof Beis Sivan (June 2).
The Shluchim Office Crowdfunding Committee released an open letter to the Chabad community worldwide, asking you to join them in this most important effort.
Over 100 Shluchim and Chassidim have already joined and committed to donate $770 or more to the moisad’s annual fundraising campaign, and the committee is turning to all Chassidim and Shluchim around the world: Please join us with a $770 donation and support this central hub established by the Rebbe to serve the needs of Shluchim.
Dear Fellow Chassidim and Shluchim,
Over the last few years we, a group of Askonim and Shluchim led by Reb Yosef Michelashvili, our chairman, have had the merit to assist the Shluchim Office with its annual fundraising campaign, and we are honored to announce this year’s campaign, which will take place b’ezras Hashem just before Gimmel Tammuz on Chof Beis – Chof Gimmel Sivan (June 2 – 3).
As the world begins a new era of hope and positivity, when people are beginning to socialize and rejoin society, Shluchim are seizing the opportunity to take the world by storm, as there was never a time like this to make the Rebbe’s vision a reality and prepare the world for Moshiach.
Shluchim all over the world are hard at work creating powerful moments of growth, impact, and transformation for millions of Jews. Now is the time to show our support for the Rebbe’s Shluchim!
The Shluchim Office, established by the Rebbe during the Kinus Hashluchim of 5747 (1986), is wholly dedicated to providing for the needs of Shluchim, their families, and their Shlichus.
As Shluchim and Askonim, we see firsthand the impact of the Shluchim Office on the personal, educational and practical needs of Shluchim. Since it was founded 34 years ago, the Shluchim Office has improved, and continues to improve the lives of Shluchim’s families, and revolutionized the world of Shlichus on every level.
Ever since its inception, this moisad has always been devoted to their mission to serve the Rebbe’s Shluchim. They are constantly creating innovative projects which respond to the current and changing needs of Shluchim.
As you know, the last year was a very challenging one for Shluchim who all rallied to adapt and adjust to the pandemic. The Shluchim Office was there for them, providing critical services for Shluchim worldwide, which helped them adapt to the unique situation.
The Shluchim Office continues to provide chinuch and friendship for Shluchim’s children through the Nigri International Online School and the Tzeirei Hashluchim Kinus and Camp. When Shluchim come to New York, they have a complimentary Shluchim Lounge to work and relax, and Shluchim Suites where they can stay. And so too in all aspects of their Shlichus – Chabad Early Childhood, new complimentary Jewish Insights weekly classes, sermons and flyers – the list goes on.
On Wednesday and Thursday Chof Beis and Chof Gimmel Sivan (June 2-3), The Shluchim Office will launch its campaign “Hand in Hand, Together for Shluchim” to raise vital funds for their work on behalf of the Shluchim.
We, the Shluchim Office Crowdfunding Committee, turn to you, our fellow Shluchim and Chassidim: Please take this opportunity to fulfil the known hoiro’o of the Rebbe for yom hahilula Yud Shvat – to give tzedoko to a moisad of the Rebbe – by supporting the Shluchim Office.
The success of this campaign is dependent on our extended family of Anash and Shluchim. On the day of the campaign, we will be picking up the phone and asking our friends and family to donate $360, $770, $1,800 or more. Please join us and reach out to two (or more) friends, and ask them to support this cause together.
You can give to the campaign RIGHT NOW by visiting TogetherforShluchim.com. Your contribution will be posted when the campaign page goes live on Wednesday at 11am.
Thank you for your support of the Shluchim Office, the moisad that the Rebbe himself established for the benefit of all Shluchim.
