Teachers and principals from across North America headed to Piscataway, NJ, Tuesday, for the annual conference hosted by Chabad’s Educational Office – Merkos Chinuch.
Now in its eighth year, the Men’s Summer Chinuch Conference attracted educators from Chabad institutions throughout the US.
“The Kinusim moved away from simply presenting fresh and exciting ideas, to fully developing a dominant theme from concept to practice,” said Education Office Director Rabbi Nochum Kaplan. “If past Kinusim presented a smorgasbord of educational ideas, then this year we are presenting a full course meal, from soup to nuts.”
The conference included lectures and workshops by leading educators from around the US including Rabbi Dr. Dovid Jacobson, of Yeshiva Educational Services – Los Angeles, Rabbi Dr. Dov Leibenstein, of Associated Talmud Torahs – Chicago, Rabbi Yoseph Y. Rosenblum, Principal, Yeshiva Schools – Pittsburgh, Rabbi Meir Fachler, Director Gemorah Brurah Foundation and Rabbi Menachem Greenbaum, Cheder Menachem Los Angeles.
“The presentations are on a high professional level. The schedule is tight. The topics are current,” said Rabbi Kaplan. “I expect everyone will find a multitude of new attitudes and ideas to take home with them.”
