Boys Kick Off Year of Friendship Circle Volunteering

Several local Bochurim have given up the one hour a week of what they have for themselves and are volunteering for the Friendship Circle. The Friendship Circle’s Boy’s division – Boys over 10 and young adults with special needs, will have Bochurim from local Yeshivos visit their homes, learn with them at Yeshiva and a host of programs and activities planned for the coming year.

The Bochurim were treated to a subway-style dinner and heard from Rabbi Mendel Nemes, himself very involved with the special-needs community. Rabbi Nemes impressed upon the volunteers the importance of the task they have taken upon themselves. He related a story of the Rebbe, of how he cancelled a farbrengen in order for bochurim to attend a Bar Mitzvah celebration of a boy with special needs. The story shows how dear the Rebbe treasures each one of his special children.

Binyomin Lerner then shared his experience as a volunteer and impressed the guidelines of the Friends@Home program, relaying how vital their friendship and visits are.

Mendel Weiss, Coordinator of the Boys division, emphasized the importance of dedication and consistency, explaining that what a FC volunteer learns and gains during this experience, is priceless and will last a lifetime.

The evening concluded with Rabbi Berel Majesky thanking the volunteers for taking upon themselves this unique Shlichus.
