In anticipation to the new Zman beginning in Chabad Yeshivas worldwide, a special conference - Kinus Talmidim Hashluchim was held for the Shluchim traveling to Yeshivos around the world which took place at F.R.E.E. of Brighton Beach, NY.

Organized by the Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim, the program started with a video of the Rebbe, followed by the keynote address from Rabbi Fishel Oster, Maggid Shiur in Beis Medrash Oholei Torah, who told Bochurim what is expected from them as Shluchim of the Rebbe.

This was followed by 5 former Talmidim Hashluchim who shared their experiences on various topics for success in Shlichus for every 5 minutes and a sumptuous Dinner.

One of the highlights of the event were Introducing "Halikut," a new program by the Vaad Hatmimim for Bochurim to take upon themselves to study the full Chelik Chof of Likutei Sichos and know it well and by-heart.

In preparation for the Mivtza, Rabbi Leima Wilhelm, a Mashpia and Maggid Shiur in Yeshivas Tomchei Tmimim in Morristown, NJ, spoke to the Bochurim about the importance of learning the Rebbe's Torah.

Attendees then split up into 3 different sessions on the topics of "Involving every Bochur" led by Rabbi Mendel Itzinger of Igud Mesivtos V'Yeshivos, "Viewing Farbrengens of the Rebbe" led By Rabbi Levi Plotkin of Connection Point, and "Fundraising and practical tips" led by Rabbi Yossi Kamman of Chassidisher Derher magazine.

The event concluded with a grand Farbrengen by Rabbi Osher Farkash of Yeshivas Chabad Argentina.

A unique memento was distributed to all the participants who thanked the Vaad Hatmimim led by Rabbi Tzvi Altein along with Rabbi Mendy Tubul, Boruch Ceitlin, Peretz Garelik and Shneur Marasow.

Great idea!
It's so important that these Shluchim bochurim are given the tools and info for this next step in their life. Just the past year, they were students themselves! B"H Lubavitch is getting into training. Thankfully, I see the difference in the new shluchim my younger sons enjoy getting to know in Yeshiva vs. the disaster and nonchalance my older sons experienced. Education and training is super important before these young men can go out to be good mentors to others.
A point for consideration re: fundraising: The Yeshivos should allow the money the shluchim are collecting (for various extra curricular activies) to be given through the yeshiva. I'm happy to give - but the past three years experience - the bochurim are fantastic and really trying to boost the Yeshiva activities - but the yeshiva doesn't cooperate with the fundraising effort and the money has to be sent to some bochur (or his parent's) paypal account.

We need the same thing for girls of Lubavitch!!! A centralized organization that helps all Bnos Chabad heads would be fantastic!

A Bochur Shliach almni 5770
A huge yasher koach goes out to the Duchman's from California who pioneered this incredible peula and concept.
Im on Shlichus now with my wife - and it was that kinus held in the Maple Shul years back - that leads us today in many aspects of our Shlichus.
