From the main sessions to socializing, shopping, and taking care of any little ones you brought with you, “packing it in” takes on a whole new meaning during Kinus.
It can get overwhelming, but we’re here to help!
Below are 6 events worth knowing about (in order of event date), and 4 services to help you during your entire stay.
1. The Shlichus Market Showroom – The One Stop Shop for your Chabad Center
From crafts for Yomim Tovim to Hebrew School curriculums and Tzitzis, the Shlichus Market offers everything you need for your Chabad Center, for the cheapest price possible. No need to run around comparing prices. Shluchos are welcome to browse and order a large selection of store items, including a huge new collection of Purim items.
On Wednesday, the 17th of Shvat (January 23rd), the Shlichus Market showroom will open its doors, at the Shluchim office, 816 Eastern Pkwy, until Wednesday, the 24th of Shvat (January 30th).
