THE HISTORY

OF AMUDIM

A Chance Meeting, An Accidental Text

Mendy Klein z”l and Zvi Gluck were each both born to help others. Mendy was a true askan, someone who shouldered the pain and burden of individuals and communities and had the foresight and bravery to meet critical issues head on. Zvi had been involved in communal affairs from the age of 15. Growing up in the home of his father, the illustrious Rabbi Edgar Gluck, Zvi witnessed the extent that one must go to support those in crisis and guide them to success. But perhaps the greatest lesson he learned from his father is the famous dictum of Pirkei Avos: “B’makom sh’ein bo anashim, hishtadel lehiyos ish” — in a place where there are no leaders, you be the leader. Zvi picked up that mantle of leadership for any Jew, anywhere in crisis becoming the one person rabbonim, politicians, and anyone involved in community support would call for guidance and assistance with: arrests, overdoses, suicide, sexual abuse and diplomatic issues.

When “fate” intervened to put Mendy and Zvi together, they combined to create a force that would change the way community issues were discussed and addressed, saving countless lives.
Shortly after that “accidental” dinner, Amudim was born to be the first call that anyone in crisis makes. Backed by an organizational structure with the resources necessary to respond quickly and properly. Amudim ensures that any Jew facing crisis is provided with the assistance and guidance he needs in the most professional, knowledgeable and caring manner.
