This year’s Kinus Hashluchim banquet will be held close to Crown Heights, COLlive has learned.
Chabad Shluchim, rabbis and lay-leaders of Jewish communities from all over the globe attend the Banquet – the largest Jewish gathering in the world, and is the high point of the annual Conference of Shluchim.
After months of waiting for City and State approval, permits were received today to hold the massive event at the Armory on Bedford Avenue between Union and President Streets.
Last year’s banquet took place at Pier 94 in Manhattan. Over 4,000 attended.
“We expect more Shluchim and more guests than ever this year,” said Rabbi Mendel Kotlarsky of Merkos. “Keeping it local will help people save time on travel and busses, and the event can start on time.”
