I am heading off to the International Conference this weekend!

I am heading off to the International Conference this weekend!
Live feed on our website of Conference Banquet

This weekend I will be in New York for the International Conference of Chabad Shluchim (emissaries). The conference includes many workshops, on a wide variety of topics that face Chabad outreach Rabbi's across the globe, from counseling to programming, from dealing with practical rabbinic's to fundraising, and many more helpful sessions. Nearly 3000 Chabad rabbis and hundreds of community lay leaders will get together for a long weekend of education and inspiration.

For me, it is an opportunity to get refreshed and invigorated and get a chance to see friends who I have not seen often in many years, and share the successes and challenges unique to a Chabad Rabbi's life.

One of the main highlights of my trip will include a visit to Rabbi Schnersohn's resting place to pay respects and to say a prayer. If you provide me with your Hebrew name and mother's Hebrew name I would be happy to mention your names too.

If you don't know either Hebrew names, then English will do as well. If you have something in particular you would like me to pray for, please mention it as well.

Another highlight of the weekend will be the conference banquet on Sunday evening which is attended by over 4000 Rabbi's and community lay leaders from around the world. You can imagine that an event of this size is an unbelievable feat in itself, but the electric atmosphere, the excitement, and the inspiration of the evening is truly an incredibly inspiring experience. Just imagine when at the climax of the evening 4000 people get up to dance to some Chassidic dancing and songs, the whole New York seems to reverberate with the energy of the moment.  

I therefore invite you to watch this event live on our website on Sunday evening after 5:30pm by clicking here.

I look forward to seeing you next week and providing a great report of the event, and coming back armed with new ideas and initiatives to take our work to the next level.

Good Shabbos
