    Rabbi Meijers was not “part of the chabad community”, he was the first shliach in holland. He was taught by the rebbe to live there, to teach in this university, and to do as much as possible for the students there, and community. He never wanted to appear in any shlichus pictures books or any kinus, because of his anava.
