The Rebbe established Nshei Chabad in the year 5712, and the annual convention was very dear to him, and he took special interest in every detail, especially the theme.
The Rebbe would send a letter to the convention and address the women and the girls in the main shul in 770 downstairs, and give his holy brochos together with a special message for the upcoming year.
One year, to stress to everyone how dear the Convention is to the Rebbe, the Rebbe instructed Rabbi Groner to go home and take care of their children, so that Mrs. Groner, who had just given birth, would be able to attend the convention.
“In this auspicious Hakhel year many organizations and schools have joined Nshei Chabad in the spirit of achdus,” said Mrs. Shterna Spritzer, Nshei Chabad director and one of the organizers of the convention. “We anticipate a rich and memorable Shabbos together. We look forward to hosting many guests from out of town and inspiring each other and being empowered to bring Moshiach Now!”
