Finding the right Shlichus opportunity can seem daunting. A first-of-its-kind network of aspiring Shluchos will provide a sense of community and clarity to all those in this stage of life.
Finding the right Shlichus opportunity can seem daunting for many individuals who are searching, often needing more knowledge of how to navigate the process and determine if a particular location is a correct fit for them and how to set up for success from the very beginning. Recognizing this challenge, the New Shluchim Desk at Merkos 302 has invested resources to create a first-of-its-kind network of aspiring Shluchim, providing a sense of community and clarity to all those in this stage of life.
With this goal in mind, preparations are underway for an upcoming New Shluchos workshop designed to equip aspiring Shluchos with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in their unique roles. Building off the success of the men’s event, the New Shluchos Workshop, taking place Monday, June 26, will be tailored specifically for women and their unique roles on Shlichus.
Carefully selected speakers have been chosen to provide participants with valuable insights and guidance. Notably, Rabbi Efraim Mintz, Director of JLI, will present a session titled “Relationships on Shlichus.” In the session, Rabbi Mintz will explore the profound significance of fostering practical bridges with all who would be encountered on Shlichus. His expertise and wisdom are poised to benefit the attending participants tremendously.
Joining Rabbi Mintz is Mrs. Leah Rosenfeld, Shlucha to Lake Worth, Florida. With her wealth of experience living on Shlichus and guiding younger Shluchos to navigate the intricacies of Shlichus life, Mrs. Rosenfeld will lead a session titled “Defining the Shlucha and Shlichus,” delving into the essential qualities that define the role of a Shlucha and the profound impact that Shlichus can have on individuals and communities.
“This is a necessary resource for anyone looking to move out on Shlichus,” noted Rabbi Mendy Shanowitz, Director of Merkos 302’s New Shluchim Desk. “Having the right approach to beginning a Shlichus will be highly beneficial to all participants.”
In addition to a rich learning experience, the workshop will also provide a platform for participants to network and form meaningful connections with other women who are striving to fulfill the Rebbe’s directive. By fostering this sense of community, aspiring Shluchos will have the opportunity to share their experiences, learn from one another, and provide support as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of their respective Shlichus journeys.
“Being part of the global community of Shluchim and Shluchos is an invaluable asset, especially for those at the start of their Shlichus,” said Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Vice Chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch. “Experience is the best teacher and we hope workshops like this empower young couples embarking on their Shlichus journey to learn from each other and from the triumphs and mistakes of those who came before them.”
Scheduled to take place on Monday, June 26, the workshop promises to be a transformative experience for all participants. To register for the program and become part of this empowering community, visit newshluchim.merkos302.com/workshop.
