There was a young man named Yaniv who decided to take a solo trip to South America. He was excited to explore new cultures, taste exotic foods, and visit breathtaking landscapes. However, his adventure turned into a nightmare when he found himself lost in a remote town, unable to speak the local language and with no money or phone. 


Yaniv wandered around for hours, feeling helpless and scared. He tried to ask for help, but nobody seemed to understand him. Just when he thought his situation couldn’t get any worse, he saw a group of people walking towards him, wearing traditional Jewish clothes and big smiles on their faces. They were from the local Chabad.


The Chabad members noticed Yaniv’s distress and immediately offered to help him. They spoke to him in Hebrew, gave him food and water, and let him use their phone to call his family. They also found him a place to stay for the night and made sure he was safe and comfortable.


Over the next few days, the Chabad members helped Yaniv navigate his way through the town, acted as translators, and even arranged for him to take a bus to the nearest embassy. They didn’t ask for anything in return, except for Yaniv’s gratitude.


Yaniv was amazed by the kindness and generosity of the Chabad members. He had never met these people before, yet they treated him like family. He realized that the work of Chabad is crucial for Jews who are traveling or living in foreign countries, providing them with a sense of community and support.


“We all know these stories. We have heard them 100 times over. Yet we are not part of them. Yet, now you have a chance to literally be part of hundreds of Chabad houses all over the world!


One practical way to make a difference is by supporting organizations like, which provides ongoing support to Chabad centers worldwide. Donating just a dollar a day ($32 a month) may seem like a small gesture, but it can make a significant impact in the lives of Jews who are traveling, studying, or living in foreign countries. 


DollarDaily is currently giving shluchim nearly $700 a day, all from people giving just one dollar. Not big donors. Not the big fish. The people just like you.


By giving a dollar a day, you are not only supporting the work of Chabad but also becoming an active participant in the global Jewish community. You are joining a network of individuals who are committed to helping Jews everywhere, regardless of their background or circumstances.


So, on this powerful day of the 28th of Nissan, let’s take action and do our part. Let’s give what we can, whether it’s a dollar a day or a larger contribution. Let’s support the everyday heroes of Chabad, who are making a difference in the world, one person at a time. And let’s walk away from today knowing that we have played a part in strengthening our global Jewish community.
