Reunited 1956 Shluchim Lead Historic Farbrengen

Following the formal panel of the Shluchim sent by the Rebbe to Eretz Yisroel in 1956 following the deadly terror attack on a Kfar Chabad School, the jam-packed Oholei Torah Zal emptied out slightly, some tables were moved together, and a Chasidisher Farbrengen comenced with those remaining, which lasted until the early hours of the morning.

    If I were one of them, I would have spoken about “MY” shlichus and what “I” (or maybe “WE”) accomplished. I would have spoken about MY heroics, my special mission, me, me, ME!

    If you notice, when each of them spoke, they were uncomfortable talking about themselves.

    Most simply refused to talk about themselves – even when prompted by the moderator. The moderator insisted and pushed them to talk about themselves “their shlichus”, but they instead talked about everything else but themselves…

    Want to know why? Because these shluchim are BOTEL btachlis to the Rebbe.

    This shlichus was not about them. If they must talk, the only thing they can talk about is the rotzon of the Rebbe.

    WOW!

    This was NOT what I expected to hear but everything that I needed to hear!!

    I did not expect to be so moved in such a powerful way. Not so much from what they said but from what they did not say.
