4500 people packed into Pier 12 on Brooklyn’s waterfront Sunday for the gala banquet of the International Conference of Shluchim.
Thousands from around the world viewed the banquet live via broadcast on COLlive.
The theme of this year’s Kinus was “Ish u’Baiso” and focused on the family unit on shlichus. A Jem video presentation, “Shlichus, A Family Affair,” highlighted Shluchim families in locations around the world.
A d’var Torah was delivered by Moshe Cohen of Manchester, UK, son of Esty Cohen (Rubin), the young shlucha who passed away earlier this month.
Mr. Gennady Boglubov of Dnepropetrovsk, whose generosity to shluchim worldwide is well-known, gave the layleader address.
The keynote speaker was Rabbi Moshe New of Hampstead, Quebec.
