The 5776 International Kinus Hashluchim convention is set to open Wednesday night, hosting a record number of 5,400 participants – including Shluchim, senior rabbis, lay leaders and family members.
Providing the most extensive and reliable coverage of Chabad’s annual get-together will be COLlive.com, the largest and most widely read Chabad news outlet.
An expanded media team will be covering the convention in Brooklyn, NY, in partnership with COLlive’s affiliate in Israel – COL.org.il, the largest Chabad news website in Hebrew.
Under the leadership of COLlive owners Mica Soffer and Yossi Rivkin, and editor Rabbi Yehuda Ceitlin, the coverage will include 6 full-time photographers and videographers.
Led by photographer Baruch Ezagui, along with Shneur Schiff, Menachem Aron, Naftali Morosow and Levi Amit, the team will capture all the exciting moments of the 4 day event, including the gala banquet at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal on Sunday.
Flying in from Israel to provide a unique perspective of the Kinus is filmmaker Shlomo Chaim Rivkin whose documentary short films about Chabad life have been widely viewed and well received.
Stay tuned as we begin our annual salute to the men behind the Shlichus network impacting the global Jewish renewal inspired by the Rebbe.
