The Virtual Kinus Hashluchos has started on Thursday Chof Beis Shevat with a visit to the Ohel, dozens of workshops, and a 24-hour Farbrengen room.
The Vaad Hakinus has worked tirelessly to create a program that will provide the Shluchos the strength and encouragement to face this year’s unique complexities.
Thousands of Shluchos have logged on from laptops, desktops, phones, tablets and any other devices, and connected with the message that was chosen as the Kinus theme: L’Chatchila Ariber – Overcoming and climbing over all obstacles.
Workshops include “Bikur Cholim (visiting the sick) During COVID and Beyond” and “The Rollercoaster Ride of Operating Friendship Circle During the Pandemic.”
The suite of workshops, addresses, vignettes and video highlights from around the world will all take place virtually, culminating in a “Grand Event” to be broadcast live on Chabad.org that will stand in for the annual Grand Banquet.
The keynote speaker will be Mrs. Chaya Chitrik, co-director of Chabad of Turkey, who will talk about the unexpected opportunities she and her husband, Rabbi Mendy Chtrik, have had running a Chabad House in a Muslim-majority nation.
