Shluchim Refuah

A confidential rofe yedid network
for Shluchim

The Rebbe often told people to seek advice from yedidim meivinim

(“friends who are knowledgeable [about the situation]”) or, in the case of medical questions, from a rofeh yedid (“a doctor who is a friend”). 

Why a “friend”?  A true friend will first identify with the questioner and his pain and then offer sound advice.

Shluchim Refuah  is a project of Chabad on Call, Merkos Suite 302.
We are here to support Mishpachas

לזכות אפרים בן יפה לבריאות הנכונה בשלימות ולאריכת ימים ושנים טובות

 “No Shliach or Shlucha should ever feel alone when faced with a medical challenge, in fear that their honor and dignity and that of their family might be compromised if they reach out for help.”

Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky


"There is no greater mission than to help the Rebbe's Shluchim and Shluchos and their families when a medical issue arises, chas v’sholom. Our team of Rofim Yedidim from across the world are here, as friends and as doctors, to assist you and your family through the steps of the medical process in any way that we can."

Medical Advisor

Dr. Shmuel Margolin


“The weight of the diagnosis left us lost, confused and with a lack of direction. We turned to a number of incredible organizations who immediately set the ball rolling. BH we are now in a much better place. I don’t know how we would have done it on our own, having the support we were given made all the difference.”

Rabbi Yochanon Klien
