For the first time, a regional Kinus hashluchim was held exclusively for the Shluchim of the Chabad Centers outside of Buenos Aires, located throughout Argentina.
In order to optimize the work done in each province, to reach every Yid throughout the country, the rabbis met and were hosted in the beautiful and impressive Beit Chabad of Cordoba.
The participants included rabbis Daniel, Mendy and Ari Levy from Tucuman, Shlomo and Mendy Tawil from Rosario, Rafi Tawil from Salta, Zalmy Lipinsky from Mar de Plata, Tuvia Serber from La Plata, Israel Soriano from Concordia as well as the 3 local shluchim of Cordoba, Yossi and Mendy Turk and Rafael Jashes.
They were accompanied by Rabbi Tzvi Grunblatt, Head Shliach of Argentina, Rabbi Yoel Migdal of ISEJ who presented projects for college-age students and young professionals, and Ari Sigaloff from Mitzva Tank, in charge of the smaller towns that have no permanent Shliach.
The Shluchim spent two days of inspiration, workshops, meetings and Hachlotos that will undoubtedly be remembered both by the shluchim themselves as well the communities they serve.
The participants visited the local Gan Meorot kindergarten and the Maimonides primary school, where they made a special Tefila for the safety of our brothers in the Land of Israel together with the children.
In the evening a cocktail reception was held with the members of the community, who also enjoyed inspiring talks from the rabbis. The emotion was palpable, and the crowd burst into a spontaneous dance after the speeches.

The BBQ asado lunch in the home of Moshe and Gisela Teicher, was impressive. “I have traveled to New York to participate in the Kinus Hashluchim, but in my wildest dreams, I never thought I would have the opportunity to bring the Kinus to my home,” said the host.
“Congratulations to the Shluchim and their families, and we wish them to continue to be very successful in the sacred work and in their effort to keep the flame of Judaism burning in every corner of the Argentine Republic!”
