    Rabbi Schneur Zalman Blumenfeld A”H – Our Shliach To Heaven to Demand The Hisgalus!

    Last year, during the Kinus HaShluchim, thousands of Shluchim around the globe were shocked and saddened to hear that one of their brothers, Rabbi Schneur Zalman (Uri) Blumenfeld, shliach to Lima, Peru was requested upon high. Beis Moshiach went out to find out what made this shliach so special to his family, mekuravim, community, friends and fellow shluchim all over the world • By Beis Moshiach Magazine • Full Article

    By Avrohom Rainitz, Beis Moshiach Magazine

    One year ago, in the middle of the Kinus HaShluchim, the shocking news was heard about the sudden passing of the Rebbe’s shliach to Lima, Peru, Rabbi Shneur Zalman (Uri) Blumenfeld, a’h of a heart attack. This was the night of 24 Cheshvan and he was only 58.

    The sad news was first heard in New York on motzoei Shabbos. Many remembered the passing of his father-in-law, the shliach, Rabbi Moshe Slonim a’h, who also passed away of a heart attack, at the age of 57, on 23 Cheshvan, in the middle of the Kinus HaShluchim. Astonishing!

    R’ Blumenfeld’s funeral took place on Monday in Lima, where he served as shliach for decades and worked devotedly on behalf of the Jews in Peru, and he was buried there.

    SHLICHUS WHICH BEGAN WITH DIFFICULTY

    R’ Blumenfeld’s parents were Rabbi and Mrs. Yerachmiel and Alte Devora of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His father served as chief rabbi of the city. R’ Blumenfeld learned in the Chabad yeshiva Machane Yisrael in Petrópolis and in 5743 he was sent with a group of tmimim to learn in Casablanca in Morocco.

    He married Shterna Sara Slonim. Before they married, they wrote to the Rebbe and said they wanted to go on shlichus and where should they go. The Rebbe referred them to Rabbi Chodakov who suggested Peru. After they wrote to the Rebbe that they were willing to go there, the Rebbe told them not to tarry in New York as many shluchim did, but to go on shlichus as soon as possible.

    Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, who was aware of the problems and special needs of this shlichus, helped them tremendously at the outset. He obtained financing for the first year and, upon the Rebbe’s instruction, he even accompanied them on their first trip to Peru.

    In those days, many South American countries suffered from inner strife. Lima, with a population of 8 million, was particularly hard hit. The rotten government allowed guerrillas to make civilian life intolerable. Shortly after the Blumenfelds began their shlichus, terrorism reached a peak. As a result, broad sections of Lima did not have regular water on a regular basis for eight months; in the best of cases there was water for one hour a day. While the water pressure was low, they had to store water for the rest of the day. Electricity was also sporadic and meager. The terrorists planted bombs and destruction in public places and every day there were casualties. The city was under curfew in the evening. Politicians, businessmen and community leaders were murdered by terrorists or kidnapped by criminals. Lima in those days was a beleaguered city whose residents were in despair. In many ways, Lima had become a ghost town.

    The young couple, he from Brazil and she from Kfar Chabad, lived temporarily in an apartment-hotel and the very first week they invited a Jewish family to their Shabbos table. They began publishing a Jewish newsletter although they were new to the area and barely knew the language. They were helped by local women who translated the pamphlet. Since then, the newsletter has been published every week and is enjoyed by 2,500 local Jews.

    Beis Moshiach

    Every Shabbos, they invited families to their Shabbos meals which became well-known among Peruvian Jews. Occasionally, they had to cancel the invitation because on Friday there were no water and electricity and they couldn’t properly prepare for Shabbos.

    IS THERE FOOD FOR SHABBOS?

    During this difficult time, when the Blumenfelds wrote to the Rebbe about the hardships, the Rebbe did not respond directly to the problems but showered them with his blessings for success in their shlichus. They also benefited from the Rebbe’s special interest in them. One Friday, they even received a phone call from the Rebbe’s office in which they were asked whether they had food for Shabbos.

    When the situation in Peru deteriorated and many Jews fled from the danger, R’ Groner asked the Rebbe whether to tell the shluchim to leave Peru. The Rebbe said absolutely not!

    From that point on, the situation improved. On 9 Nissan 5750, at “dollars,” when R’ Blumenfeld asked for a bracha for the country, the Rebbe said, “Now the country will have a time of menucha, shalva and material and spiritual expansion.” Indeed, a short while later, Alberto Kenya Fujimori was elected president and the security, organizational, and economic situation began to change from one extreme to another.

    For two years, the new president worked to eradicate the terrorists. He overcame the water and electricity problems and that of other services. Along with the material plenty, the shluchim saw a great improvement on the spiritual front too. For example, the weekly shiur that had at first attracted less than ten, began to have forty to fifty attendees.

    Their shlichus work expanded to other cities like Cusco and Huaraz which are visited by many tourists. With great exertion they established themselves in the country and today, the Chabad House of Peru operates a kosher store which sells kosher products, at subsidized prices, that are unobtainable elsewhere such as milk, which is supervised every week, cheese, bread from the only kosher bakery in the country, etc.

    During the next thirty years, R’ Blumenfeld arranged Shabbos and holiday meals, ran large Pesach sedarim in Lima, supervised mega-sedarim in the Peruvian Andes Mountains, provided help to the community and to thousands of backpackers after natural disasters, and arranged shiurim and other Jewish events in the country which had very little traditional Jewish presence before they came.

    Aside from providing for the spiritual and emotional needs of tourists, R’ Blumenfeld was involved in helping families locate their missing loved ones and in providing logistical aid to visitors who were in a bind. A few years ago, when there was an earthquake in Lima which killed hundreds of people, the Chabad House became an information center for worried parents in Eretz Yisrael. Tourists left reassuring texts or went to the Chabad House to call their parents and the Chabad House became a hub for this sort of help.

    THE REBBE PREVENTED A MASS TERROR ATTACK BY ‘FATAH’

    Upon arriving in Peru, the Blumenfelds tried to connect Jews to the Rebbe and to create a direct connection between mekuravim and the Rebbe. These Jews began to see the Rebbe as a Jewish leader and R’ Blumenfeld often sent wealthy people from his community to get a bracha from the Rebbe. Some of them left motzoei Shabbos on the eight-hour flight, arrived in New York before noon on Sunday, received dollars and brachos from the Rebbe, and were back in Peru that evening. Many of them had astounding miracles as a result of these encounters.

    After Chof-Beis Shevat 5748, the Israeli ambassador in Peru sent a letter of consolation to the Rebbe. The Rebbe responded with a thank-you letter in which he defined the role of an ambassador as a very responsible position and wished him to be free of all worries.

    In the meantime, on motzoei Shavuos, while giving out kos shel bracha, the Rebbe gave a bottle of mashke to R’ Blumenfeld’s father-in-law, R’ Moshe Slonim, and said it was for the Jews of Peru. This seemed most surprising.

    R’ Slonim rushed to send the bottle to Peru and when the shluchim received the package they invited their acquaintances to drink l’chaim from the mashke from the Rebbe. Among those invited was the ambassador who told them about the letter he received from the Rebbe and expressed surprise over the Rebbe wishing him to be free of worries, and having sent mashke to the Jews of Peru.

    Three days later, the ambassador called R’ Blumenfeld and said in amazement, “Now I understand what the  Rebbe did for us. Yesterday, they caught three dangerous terrorists from ‘Fatah’ who came especially to target Jewish institutions. Their capture prevented a terrible tragedy.”

    PERMEATED WITH MOSHIACH

    Following the sicha of Chof-Ches Nissan 5751, in which the Rebbe spoke about the personal responsibility of every Jew to bring the Geula, R’ Blumenfeld encouraged the Jews of the community to sign a letter to the Rebbe in which they wrote that all endpoints for the Geula had been reached and why had Moshiach not come?

    The Rebbe marked the words “all the endpoints for the Geula had been reached” and wrote, “That is precisely my point and repeating the complaint is no response at all; I will mention it at the tziyun.”

    After the Kinus HaShluchim 5752, when the Rebbe redefined the work of shlichus as preparing the world to welcome Moshiach, R’ Blumenfeld put in great efforts to instill Moshiach and Geula in every detail of shlichus. Whoever entered the Chabad House noticed the sign “Boruch Haba Melech HaMoshiach” in gold letters over the entrance way. The sign was one way that R’ Blumenfeld expressed great chayus in inyanei Moshiach.

    מרכז סת”ם 720

    Not only the programming was suffused with the atmosphere of Moshiach and Geula; the daily life of the family of shluchim reflected this too. One of the guests who attended the seder at the Blumenfelds reported, “When it was time to open the door when saying ‘Shefoch Chamoscha,’ the shluchim’s children proclaimed, ‘Yechi Adoneinu Moreinu V’Rabeinu Melech HaMoshiach l’Olam Va’ed.’ This made a tremendous impression on the guests at the table.”

    In an interview that R’ Blumenfeld gave Beis Moshiach in the past he said, “Everyone here knows our views about the Rebbe MHM. Not only don’t we hide it, on the contrary, we emphasize it at every opportunity. This does not interfere with out work; it enhances it. Our success is because of these positions we take. We saw that a shliach who hides his views, not wanting the Jews in his place to know them, harms not only himself but mainly the people he is in charge of being mekarev. Here, in Peru, we openly say Yechi and everyone accepts it with complete faith and doesn’t argue.”

    R’ Blumenfeld would encourage the people where he lived to write to the Rebbe even after Gimmel Tammuz and to ask for his brachos. He would also encourage those who could, to travel to 770 and draw chayus from Beis Chayeinu.

    EVERY DAY, THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

    In an interview he previously gave Beis Moshiach, R’ Blumenfeld described a gamut of activities that he and his wife do year-round:

    “We do the standard programming which every Chabad House does. These are the sort of activities that the Rebbe delineated to us and every Chabad House, adjusting them to the local conditions. Our ongoing activities consist of the following:

    “1) A weekly publication called Reflexión (Reflection).We began giving it to every home the first week we arrived in Peru. We distribute it not only in Peru but in other Spanish speaking countries in the area too.

    “2) We have flooded Peru with kosher mezuzos, kosher tefillin, sifrei kodesh and pictures of the Rebbe. Since we arrived, we have sold tens of thousands of mezuzos and hundreds of pairs of tefillin and numerous sefarim. Nearly every Jewish home has a picture of the Rebbe. When we came to Peru, we saw a bizarre phenomenon in that the people who attended shul on weekdays almost all davened without tefillin and said kaddish at every tefilla. Today, this no longer exists.

    “3) We have shiurim which are attended by dozens of people. There is a special shiur for the schoolchildren. We’ve developed connections with dozens of families with whom we meet on various occasions. They visit our home, the Chabad House, or we make house calls.

    “Every Shabbos and Yom Tov, families are invited to attend the Shabbos or Yom Tov meal in our home. These joint meals, which last several hours, are very beneficial in being mekarev people. Naturally, we attend all the simchas and the baalei simcha consider us as ‘mechutanim.’

    Tahara

    “We’ve become the people they turn to for any problem that arises in their families and life in general.

    “4) Starting in the first year we came here, we have put up dozens of large public menorahs. At first, Jews were opposed to this, fearing that the menorahs would engender reactions on the part of local terrorists but we stood strong and were successful. We sent menorahs to people’s homes and hundreds of people lit them.

    “Before Purim and Pesach, manos and shemura matzos are sent to every Jewish home.

    “We baked challos for Shabbos which was an attraction for the locals. Every Friday, they came to buy challa for Shabbos.

    “All this besides the standard things like arranging farbrengens on special dates in the calendar. These farbrengens have been very beneficial.

    “A field of activities in its own right is working with the Israeli tourists who come here to South America after their army service. Peru’s amazing jungles attract thousands of young people. They occasionally come for Shabbos or holiday meals, especially on the Yomim Noraim and seder night.”

    GIVING HEART AND SOUL

    “The shluchim are in touch with Jews who find themselves in Peru for any number of reasons. We are speaking of a broad range of instances in which Jews get themselves into different situations and need help, starting with those who have lost their money or passport, on to those who were in natural disasters and finally, those arrested for criminal activity and are behind bars, far from their homes and families.

    “We are in touch with prisons where we’ve visited numerous times to help Jewish inmates. Conditions in Peruvian jails are very harsh. One of the times, I encountered an Israeli prisoner who was sentenced to ten years. He was devastated and I tried to encourage him and explained that every person has a mission to carry out. Perhaps his mission is to be in this place and to put on tefillin here. The Israeli put on tefillin for the first time in his life and agreed to continue to do so.

     

    “A few days later, that inmate came to our house, to everyone’s surprise. He said that the day after my visit to him in prison, he was called to the prison office and informed that he was free to go. He connected this with what I said about his mission in the world. He had come to thank us and to keep his commitment to put tefillin on regularly.”

    Someone in Lima was addicted to hard drugs for many years. All attempts at getting him off had failed. R’ Blumenfeld treated him devotedly and when the man’s situation stabilized, sent him to the Rebbe where he spent ten days and was completely rehabilitated. When he returned to Peru, he went back to being a partner in the family business. He and his family were full of admiration for the work of the shluchim.

    FIGHTING INTERMARRIAGE

    R’ Blumenfeld devoted a lot of his life on shlichus to preventing assimilation and intermarriage. Preventing a mixed marriage in time or trying to separate an intermarried couple entailed a lot of work. He put hours into explaining, convincing and pleading. There was a lot of work of this sort between Israeli tourists and local girls.

    For example, a young Jewish woman in Peru knew a non-Jew and decided to marry him. Her parents opposed the marriage and she ran away with her boyfriend to America and lived there with him. The parents shared their pain with the shluchim. R’ Zalman and his wife decided to head out and they went to that distant state and for two days convinced the girl and her boyfriend that their union was good for neither of them. After much effort, they were able to separate them. Mrs. Blumenfeld brought the woman to the Rebbe who gave her two dollars and blessed her. Mrs. Blumenfeld kept in touch with the woman every day for two months to make sure she had no intentions of going back to the goy.

    Another time, the security guard who always stood in the entrance to the Chabad House showed R’ Blumenfeld a book and said, “A Jewish woman left this book with me and asked me to give it to you.” R’ Blumenfeld recognized the book as one that he himself had given out to the Jews in the community, one which deals with preventing intermarriage. There was a small note attached with the name of the woman who returned the book.

    Lemaan

    R’ Blumenfeld realized why she had returned the book. She was about to marry a non-Jew. The guard even said that both of them had been there to return the book. R’ Blumenfeld knew that she hadn’t even opened the book, thus, so it seemed, expressing her loyalty to the goy.

    There wasn’t much R’ Blumenfeld could do and he knew that he had done what he could and the rest was up to the meshaleiach. A few months later he heard the news that the mixed marriage was canceled. He was surprised and was curious to find out what had happened after that defiant step of returning the book.

    Upon looking into the matter he found out that the boy had told his fiancee that he wasn’t going to marry her. He had found out what the book was about and that Jews are the Chosen People and that, therefore, a mixed marriage wasn’t suitable.

    Another soul saved thanks to the work of the shluchim in Peru.

    A SPECIAL PERMIT ISSUED BY THE CHIEF OF STAFF DURING CORONA

    Many people feel at home at the Chabad House in Lima, both people who live locally and visitors to the city.

    With the outbreak of corona, like other countries, Peru at first announced a lockdown. Citizens were not allowed to be out on the street. By divine providence, before Pesach 5781, the shluchim received special permission, signed by the Peruvian Army Chief of Staff which enabled them to distribute shemura matza to every Jewish home.

    “If, during normal times, the Chabad House is the place to turn to for everything Jewish, in Peru this is all the more true, because in normal times there are not a lot of places to go to for Jewish matters. If there’s no Chabad, there is no Judaism.

    “During the lockdown, we needed a travel permit to give out matza and obtain food. We had to operate the kitchen and make deliveries to people considered part of the high-risk population; milking, making chalav Yisrael cheese, etc. We had to ensure there was kosher meat.

    “Even during corona we had a chuppa with a minyan of men. We held bar mitzvas while following the rules of social distancing. We took care of the sick and brought people to Jewish burial. Throughout this period, there were shiurim and farbrenges on Zoom. Some of our children did not make it back home because the airport was closed. Boruch Hashem, our youngest son managed to get here on the last flight from Eretz Yisrael and he helped us a lot along with two bachurim who helped us make it through such a challenging time.”

    ONLY 58

    Not only R’ Blumenfeld’s family and friends were shocked by his sudden passing, but the entire Jewish community in Lima and thousands of people who passed through his Chabad House over the past decades and were helped by him so graciously.

    He was survived by his wife and their children: Chaya Raskin of Orlando, Fla.; Mendy Blumenfeld of Israel; Reiza Blumenfeld of Peru; Rivka Pevzner of Brooklyn, N.Y.; Yehudis Carlebach of Peru; Moshe Blumenfeld of Peru; and Yerachmiel Blumenfeld of Peru, as well as his siblings.

    MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, THE SHLIACH

    By Rabbi Chaim Slonim, shliach in Dijon, France

    My brother-in-law, Rabbi Shneur Zalman Blumenfeld a’h was a role model of a Chassid, mekushar, and mainly, a shliach. In the invitations that he sent for his children’s weddings, he used the word “shliach” in reference to the parents since he considered this the essence of who he was.

    In the sichos of the Kinus HaShluchim, the Rebbe said a number of times that there are several levels of shliach. One year, the Rebbe said that one of the goals of the Kinus HaShluchim is that those shluchim who were only on the level that their actions represented the meshaleiach be influenced by those on higher levels, to the level of being like the meshaleiach himself.

    To the shluchim, all of whom work with the power of the meshaleiach, there are those who are more action oriented emissaries, which is the main thing, but the intellectual or emotional connection to the meshaleiach is not at the ultimate level. Then there are shluchim whose actions, emotions, outlook on things, their koch, is like that of the meshaleiach. That was Rabbino Uri as the people in the community called him.

    There are mekusharim in dress but not necessarily in the garments of the soul, thought, speech and action, but only in actual clothing. They dress like the Rebbe but sometimes it’s merely external and the outside doesn’t match the inside. That’s a certain level but Chabad demands pnimiyus.

    With him, hiskashrus was expressed from top to bottom, inwardly and outwardly. In his speech, thoughts, behavior, as well as his dress he was a model of the higher reality.

    There are shluchim who speak to an audience, who think of how to bring down an idea they are saying as it is, in its source, in order to adapt it to every person. The same applies to other issues in which “they put on the clothing of the one that needs to be refined,” getting down to the level of the mushpa in order to try and reach a broader audience.

    yoni lorber

    This might be the approach, and I do it too, but sometimes you go so far down that you can forget, even in some small measure, who we really are.

    Rabbino Uri did not come down from his level. All his sermons were sichos and maamarim of the Rebbe. When he spoke to mekuravim, and I did not understand much since he spoke in Spanish, there were words that he repeated every few sentences, and always, in every speech, “le Rebbe dijo,” “the Rebbe said.” His behaviors were like the Rebbe, in niggunim etc. as was his dress. In every way, the Rebbe was alive in him.

    I think he was particular not to appear in public without a jacket based on the famous story about someone who told the Rebbe about a certain Chassid who the teller of the story paid a visit to and before he opened the door he put on a jacket. The Rebbe responded, “There are those who are far but are close.” My brother-in-law, R’ Uri, was close, in thought, speech and of course, action.

    Even as a brother and brother-in-law, I did not know much about his/their massive works, because he and his wife, my sister, did not talk about it. I heard about it from others.

    He was a shliach with all ten of his soul powers. He knew that everything he did, all his successes, were attributed to the meshaleiach and he always spoke about this.

    In the sicha of Chayei Sarah 5752, the Rebbe says that the inyan of shlichus, the connection and unification of the shliach with the meshaleiach reaches its true fulfillment when the shliach comes to the meshaleiach and says to him, “We did your assignment; now you do your assignment and send us Moshiach Tzidkeinu.”

    As the Kinus HaShluchim is about to end, we ask the outstanding one of the group, Rabbi Shneur Zalman ben Yerachmiel to go to the “true Meshaleiach” and tell him, “I did my shlichus; now the time has come for You, as it were, to do Your shlichus – send us Moshiach.”

    THE SHLIACH WHO WAS LIKE MY BROTHER

    By Rabbi Yitzchok Kupchik, Shliach in La Paz, Bolivia

    In utter shock we heard the terrible news about the sudden passing of the highly accomplished etc. shliach, Rabbi Shneur Zalman (Uri) Blumenfeld, while carrying out his shlichus.

    Chassidim don’t eulogize, but I will write a few words along the lines of “and the living shall take it to heart.”

    I first got to know R’ Blumenfeld a decade ago, when I went on shlichus to Bolivia which shares a border with Peru where R’ Blumenfeld was a shliach.

    As a veteran shliach, he called me during my first days of shlichus and spoke to me and spurred me on about a number of issues.  He wasn’t the type to say “kol ha’kavod” and offer compliments that would cause you to feel satisfied about your work and entitled to a rest.

    I, a young shliach starting out, a beginner, was shocked from the first moment. “What? He’s telling me what to do and how to do it?! He doesn’t know me, doesn’t know the place where I’m working…” It was only as the conversation continued that I felt that what he said was coming from Ahavas Yisrael in his heart and concern for the Rebbe’s inyanim.

    When I realized this, I began to consult with him about a number of dilemmas and shlichus matters, especially regarding dealing with the community and local Jews.

    On the one hand, he was tough and did not give an inch when it came to halacha. On the other hand, he offered advice and unique tactics. His amazing suggestions, that came from his vast experience of years on shlichus, accomplished their positive effects in the most amazing fashion.

    One example of many was the mechitza. In the shul in my community, they were not willing to put up a mechitza. They had quarreled with the shliach who was there before me. As a result, he left the shul, opened his own shul and in the end he left his place of shlichus.

    R’ Blumenfeld told me you cannot give in on halacha but you must act with wisdom and sensitivity. He said, I think you need to make it a personal issue for you; that your wife will come and daven in the shul, she’ll sit in a corner of the shul and you’ll put a mechitza around her. Don’t put the mechitza for other women, just around your wife. As a matter of course, they won’t fight with you because you didn’t make a mechitza for them.

    And the women won’t leave your wife alone. They will sit next to her and will see that a mechitza is not a terrible thing. They’ll get used to it and the mechitza will end up being moved to the center of the shul without fights and arguments.

    It worked out just as he said. We have a mehudar mechitza in our shul and it happened without any fights.

    His Ahavas Yisrael and caring came through in so many ways. When our sixth child was born, I invited him to be the sandak. Although he was a very busy shliach and he had a very important meeting with a very rich person that had been scheduled weeks before, he promised to come. He didn’t cancel the meeting. “Worst case, I won’t sleep at night. I’ll attend the bris and then take a morning flight back. I’ll get Shacharis with my community and go to the meeting from there.” I didn’t want to think about what the meeting would be like after a sleepless night.

    He arrived for the bris. Mrs. Blumenfeld sent presents and treats (not available in Bolivia, nor in Peru for that matter) for all our children. Right after the bris he disregarded his tiredness and sat down to farbreng and that went into the night until his morning flight.

    La Paz is the city with the highest altitude in the world which is why our babies have a hard time with oxygen in their first month. Unfortunately, the oxygen levels dropped in the middle of the night and the oxygen tank was used up. I had to leave the farbrengen and run and get a new oxygen tank.

    R’ Blumenfeld remained calm and with his special chayus he continued to sit with the bachurim as he told them about the special and personal attention he got from the Rebbe at the beginning of his shlichus.

    When I went to Lima for his daughter’s wedding I was stunned by how the wedding was Chabad in every respect, with the high-end catered food with mehudar kashrus emerging from the Chabad House kitchen. (Have you ever thought of parents of a kallah directing the cooking of the food on the day of the wedding, making sure there are places to sleep for dozens of guests from all over the world, happily welcoming and hosting hundreds of guests from the community, and more? To me, this was an unforgettable shiur/lesson.)

    My youngest son was born in the middle of the corona hysteria with Bolivian skies and borders closed. I despaired of being able to make a bris on time. R’ Blumenfeld called and took an interest and insisted and pushed and used his connections and did not give up for more than two months until we were able to leave Bolivia and make the bris in Eretz Yisrael.

    “Do not consider the money; don’t think of that at all. If there will be a problem, I’ll take care of it,” he told me.

    He himself called his own wealthy donors and asked them for help as though this was his personal situation. Throughout that time, he called to take an interest and sent me encouraging text messages. Here are some of them:

    “The main thing is you have a shlichus. Devote yourself to it with mesirus nefesh and surely you will see unanticipated blessing. It’s all included in the process of Moshiach’s revelation.”

    “Remember, don’t forget, the Rebbe wants you in your place of shlichus!”

    “Be strong. You did not travel alone; the Rebbe is with you!”

    When we tried to bring a mohel from neighboring countries on a private plane, he used all his connections in all the South American countries. He spoke with people in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, etc. and tried again and again with incredible persistence, just to help another shliach.

    Surely, with this persistence, he won’t give up up above until the hisgalus of the Rebbe now!
