In just under 16 days, thousands of Shluchim from around the world will converge upon the Bedford-Union Armory in Crown Heights, where more than 80 sessions and workshops of the International Conference of Shluchim will be held.
Last week, the production team, led by Kinus Chairman Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky and the Vaad HaKinus, commenced the extensive work involved in turning the empty armory into what will become a well appointed setting fit for such an auspicious event.
The Kinus is scheduled to take place in Brooklyn on November 4-9, 2015 (22-27 Cheshvan, 5776), and includes prayers, learning, special visits to the Rebbe’s Ohel and room at 770 Eastern Parkway and concludes with a gala banquet.
A full day during the convention –typically on a Thursday– is dedicated to discussions covering countless topics that relate to Shlichus and communal matters, primarily through its comprehensive workshops, programs and special sessions.
In the past these workshops were held at the Hilton in Downtown Brooklyn or The Palace hall in Williamsburg, but this year they will be held closer to Lubavitch Headquarters. The Armory, located at Bedford Avenue and Union Street, will provide ample seating for all workshops and meals.
Organizers noted that it is a short walk from 770 and will give “the possibility for all of the Kinus events to take place under one roof.”
