New Men's Mashpia site launches Mashpiim.org

At last, the men's Mashpia website is here. The organizers of Findamashpia.info (for women) are happy to introduce Mashpiim.org for men/boys to go to, and make use of. To increase the number of
Mashpiim/Mashpios, we are always open for suggestions of men and women who fit into the category of Mentchen and Y’rei Shomayim.

Now, both men and women have an address to go to, to fulfill the Rebbe's most heartfelt request of Asei L'cha Rav. Knowing that the Mashpiim that are listed have agreed to the times listed, helps making the call easier.

Additionally, knowing how much Bracha one can draw down through fulfilling this request, is another way to be encouraged to make use of these two helpful websites.

For more information or to make suggestions, For men, please call Rabbi Noach Vogel at 408-375-7770, or email Rabbi Chaim Yitzchok Vogel
at chaimyv@gmail.com.   For women please email Rivkah at: rvchabad@sbcglobal.net or call
