Picture of the Day

By Gldmeier @gldmeier
around holiday season, the past few years, we've become accustomed to seeing pictures of a Chabad shliach putting tefillin on someone dressed up as Santa Claus. Those pictures are pretty standard by now. The following image is a bit more unusual..
Picture of the Day
the story behind it:
The head of the Buddhist monastery in Sri Lanka recently revealed that he is Jewish, because of the local Chabad House, though had renounced his Judaism a number of decades ago. After laying tefillin for the first time he broke out crying and requested the local Chabad shliach, Rav Mendel Kromy, keep in touch with him. He kept in touch via being a guest for Shabbos and for prayer services in the Chabad House on various Shabbos and holidays, until he recently abandoned his involvement in avoda zara. Today he is one of the members of the Chabad baal teshuva community in Sri Lanka and participates regularly in the prayers and learning sessions in the Chabad House.
