Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim Head Staff Announced

As Shluchim around the world prepare for their arrival in New York for the annual Kinus Hashluchim, their sons are gearing up for a Kinus of their own. 

The Kinus Tzeirei Hashluchim, which takes place parallel to the adult program, is designed to inspire and entertain the young boys who live on Shlichus year-round.

The main program is for boys grades 3-8 and begins on Friday morning, 24 Cheshvan/November 22, and concludes on Sunday evening,  26 Cheshvan/November 24th. It’s 72 hours of fun, friends and inspiration.

There is an optional program on Thursday, 23 Cheshvan / November 21st for those Shluchim outside the tri-state are who arrive early, (sans sleeping accommodations).

Over the course of their Kinus, the young Shluchim will be in a warm and chassidishe environment, davening, learning and farbrenging together. They will visit the Rebbe’s Ohel, take their own group photo in front of 770, and enjoy spectacular trips all while spending invaluable time with their friends.

“We’re putting the finishing touches on what promises to be an incredible program,” said Rabbi Berel Bendet, who directs the program. “We, Boruch Hashem, have an amazing group of staff and we are excited about some new additions to the program this year.”
