Chabad Rabbis will be traveling from around the world next week to attend the annual International Conference of Shluchim in Brooklyn, NY. And so will their sons.
Parallel to the adult convention which includes lectures and workshops, a kid-friendly version called Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim will be held to inspire and entertain the young boys.
“It is a unique opportunity for the sons of Shluchim to draw the same energy and inspiration as their fathers do from each year’s Kinus,” says Rabbi Gedalia Shemtov, Director of the Shluchim Office which organizes and funds it together with Merkos.
The main program is for boys grades 3-8 and begins on Friday morning, November 6th / Cheshvan 24th, and concludes on Sunday evening November 8th / Cheshvan 26th with accommodations included.
There is an optional program on Thursday, November 5th / Cheshvan 23rd for those Shluchim who arrive early, but sleeping accommodations for that night is not included.
Over the course of their Kinus, the young Shluchim will be davening and learning together, attending farbrengens, visiting the Rebbe’s Ohel, taking a group photo in front of 770 Eastern Parkway and going on trips.
“Throughout the Kinus, the children will be in a warm and chassidishe environment, supervised by a staff of dedicated counselors,” said Rabbis Moshe Pinson and Shmulik Greenberg, who are jointly directing the program.
The head staff for Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim 5776 are:
Youngest Division: Eli Nochum Block, Berel Paltiel, Yossi Sirota.
Middle Division: Mendel Hertz, Mendel Perlstien, Moshe Sassonkin.
Older Division: Moshe Adler, Levi Kesselman, Levi Plotkin.
Administration: Yisrolik Kievman
Similar to their fathers, the young Kinus will conclude with a Grand Banquet in Crown Heights bringing the entire weekend to a memorable point with singing, dancing and a Roll Call. There will be a surprise appearance, organizers say.
This year, the Shluchim Office will be offering ongoing updates and notifications about the Kinus on social media. [email protected] on Twitter, or Kinus Tzeirei Hashuchim on Facebook, www.facebook.com/ShluchimKids.
