The International Conference of Shluchim, the largest rabbinical gathering globally, commenced in Crown Heights. Shluchim from over 100 countries are converging, immediately immersed in a network of shared connection and purpose as they greet their colleagues from around the globe.
Amidst heartfelt reunions and exchanges, a poignant moment unfolds as the Shluchim are granted the opportunity to visit the Rebbe’s room, fortifying their mission with uplifting inspiration and connection.
Months of preparation behind the scenes culminate in this final stretch of round-the-clock hustle as the International Conference of Shluchim begins. The dedicated Kinus staff can be seen going over logistics and setting up for the 6,500 guests beginning to trickle in for the largest gathering of rabbis in the world.
“This year’s Kinus brings special meaning as our hearts and prayers are with our brethren in the holy land and all Jews going through challenging times around the world,” says Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Chairman of the International Conference of Shluchim and Vice-Chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch, “We’ve made sure every part of the Kinus will be connected to the current situation and hope it will serve as a platform to strengthen and uplift the Jewish people worldwide.”
