A group of Askonim and Shluchim led by director Rabbi Gedalya Shemtov are leading the annual fundraiser for the Shluchim Office which will take place this Sunday, Chof Zayin Sivan.
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 Friends, Chassidim and Shluchim,
Chof Ches Sivan is approaching, the day the Rebbe and Rebbetzin came to America, together with the yom hahilula Gimmel Tammuz, when we, the Rebbe’s Chassidim and Shluchim, all come together to strengthen and redouble our commitment to the Rebbe’s shlichus by bringing the Rebbe’s message to every corner of the world with the goal of l’hovi liymois hamoshiach.
As you know, it’s this time of year the Shluchim Office holds its annual crowdfunding campaign, which brings in the critical funds needed to ensure the Shluchim Office continues fulfilling the mandate that the Rebbe gave them in a growing and ever increasing measure: to assist, support and serve as a central hub for the Shluchim and their families.
Ever since its inception, The Shluchim Office has always been devoted to their mission. They are constantly creating innovative projects which respond to the current and changing needs of Shluchim. To name a few:
- Tripling the Shluchim Hospitality space by adding new accommodation on Empire Blvd with complete apartments, in partnership with Tzach in Israel;
- New Free “Jewish Insights” classes used by more than 750 Shluchim;
- New Free Flyers every Yom Tov to advertise events;
- A growing student body of 850 Shluchim’s kids (150 new this year) in Nigri Shluchim Online School;
- 520 Jewish children from all walks of life (120 new this year!) learn in Nigri Jewish Online School geared for Jewish kids in small towns;
- The Shluchim Gemach increased loan amounts for simchas and new cars in response to inflation and rising costs;
- 50 Chabad preschool directors enjoyed a successful and outstanding two-day retreat in Florida, and the list goes on and on.
We will, please G-d, be launching the “Our Families, Our Shlichus,” campaign this coming Sunday, 27th of Sivan (June 26, 2022) with a goal to raise $450,000 in 36 hours. You can click here to donate NOW and join us together for Shluchim!
We, the Shluchim Office Crowdfunding Committee, turn to you, our fellow Shluchim and Chassidim: Please take this opportunity to fulfill the known hoiro’o of the Rebbe for yom hahilula Yud Shvat – to give tzedoko to a moisad that the Rebbe himself established by the Kinus Hashluchim farbrengen of 5747 to benefit all Shluchim.
We are happy to share that over one hundred and forty Shluchim and Chassidim have already committed to give $770 or more on the day of the campaign. 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 to participate as well. We invite each of you to join us in supporting the upcoming fundraising campaign at TogetherForShluchim.com with a commitment of $770 or more, or as much as you can give.
In the merit of supporting The Shluchim Office may we all be zoiche to see the fulfillment of the unusual blessings that the Rebbe gave when he spoke about its establishment: “… ensure success in the fulfillment of the Shlichus … and personal success – children, health and sustenance, all in great abundance; healthy children and grandchildren; attaining good shidduchim; and blessings in every possible manner.”
