Renowned lecturer and author Rabbi Simon Jacobson and Dr. Roneet Lev, a close friend of Lori Kaye, will be the guest speakers of the 64th annual Convention of N’shei Ubnos Chabad to be held in Crown Heights.
The convention caps off a year of growth and expansion by N’Shei Chabad, established by the Rebbe in 5712, and which was very dear to the Rebbe, so much so that he took a special interest in every detail. In the early years, Rebbetzin Chana graced the convention with her presence.
The Rebbe would send a letter to the convention and address the women and the girls in the main shul in 770 downstairs and give his holy brochos together with a special message for the upcoming year.
The N’shei Chabad annual convention was always the culmination of the year’s programs and activities. It will take place on Shabbos, 27 Iyar – June 1st through Sunday, June 2nd.
In the past year, N’shei Chabad has grown and expanded its activities. Hundreds attended their most recent event to welcome Moshiach. The organizing committee has been expanded, including Zohar Sasson, Chanie Chanin, and Devorah Bukiet. Block Shiurim, farbrengens and activities are being organized by Gitty Stolik and Rivka Levy. Shluchos Rivka Katz of Los Angeles and Basya Rubashkin of Postville, Iowa, are organizing global Moshiach activities.
The theme of this year’s convention will be “נגילה ונשמחה בו”, Joy for the Geulah, and will feature an inspiring and stimulating program for the guests of the convention which includes visiting the Rebbe’s room, a beautiful Shabbos afternoon program, and Sunday’s final event.
The Shabbos afternoon event at Oholei Torah is a highly anticipated yearly event, in which the entire community of women and girls are invited to attend.
Included in the speakers are Mrs. Rivka Malka Perlman of Baltimore, the initiator of the worldwide Geulah Gatherings, events which have united thousands of women from around the globe, who will speak about how the world is ready for the Geulah.
Mrs. Miryam Swerdlov will be the MC and Samantha (Shira) Levine, a student from Machon L’Yahadus, will share her story.
The concluding event and major weekend highlight will be held in the main shul of 770 Eastern Parkway on Sunday evening. The evening will be dedicated to the memory of Lori Kaye HYD, who was murdered in the shooting attack at Chabad of Poway, CA, and the Guest Speaker will be Dr. Roneet Lev, a close friend of Lori’s, who will share memories.
Registration will open at 6:00 PM, and the program will begin promptly at 6:45 pm. Rabbi Shlomo Majeski will read the Rebbe’s letter and Rabbi Simon Jacobson will be the Keynote Speaker.
Nshei Chabad anticipates a rich and memorable Shabbos together, shared with women from all over the community. The inspiring convention is geared toward all Jewish women, from all over, and of all ages! Nshei Chabad is looking forward to a weekend where women will be uplifting each other and empowering each other to bring Moshiach Now!”
