Ohr Torah Stone’s Beren-Amiel and Straus-Amiel Emissary Institutes held an exciting gathering for the program’s new emissaries, who in recent weeks began their shlichut in countries around the world including Hong Kong, Germany, Kenya, Venezuela, Chile and more.
During the meeting, the new emissaries shared experiences and insights from their first steps on shlichut and compared notes on the process of acclimatization to their new roles.
“There are a lot of deliberations along the way, but once you close the last suitcase, you become an emissary and embark on the role of your life. From now on, no matter what happens, you are on shlichut,” said Yedidya and Ahuva Toyber, who recently began their positions in Caracas, Venezuela.
Rabbi Eliahu Birnbaum, director of the Beren-Amiel and Straus-Amiel institutes, said: “It is gratifying to see all the new shlichim are in a positive process of focusing on their new positions and assignments. Although some had a complex start, they were all received very well in their communities and now, after a short period of time, most of the initial difficulties seem to have disappeared and their main concentration is fulfilling their mission.”
