A Jewish Woman's Journey: Guest Speaker at the Kinus HaShluchos 5772

Mrs. Ilana Skolnik of Capetown, South Africa shares the amazing story of her personal journey as a Jewish woman. While married to Israeli businessman and chairman of Friends of Lubavitch of Tel Aviv, the late Naaman Skolnik, she developed a special connection to the Rebbe.

South Africa is not Eretz Yisrael Chabad, under the tutelage of the late Rebbe, zt'L has done amazing kiruv work worldwide. Ilana's journey is an inspiration to many women for sure.
Nevertheless, her description of davening in South Africa as feeling like Israel seems a bit far-fetched. As Rav Mordechai Eliyahu stated doing mitzvot abroad doesn't have the same status as carrying them out in Eretz Yisrael. Reply

Norman Skolnik. I knew Norman for over 40 years, from his life in Australia to his life in Israel.

He was without a doubt a Mensh doing so much good for soo many.

The big Mitzvah in his later life was his meeting Ilana. Reply

Absolutely Beautiful! Mrs. Skolnik spoke so eloquently! So wonderful to hear her confirm the incredible work done by all the Shluchim women around the world. Thank you all for helping to build better lives for all Jews and bridging the gap between those who live with love of HaShem and those who know nothing of that love! Thank you! Reply
