“Make an International Kinus…Here!”
That is the call of the leadership of Tzeirei Agudas Chabad in Eretz Yisroel to shluchim across the country who are debating whether to travel to New York for the Kinus Hashluchim.
“Many of our brothers in the shluchim family are considering if they should travel to the Kinus in New York this year,” they wrote in a letter released on Monday.
They noted that besides the current war, there is also uncertainty about what the future holds in the coming days and weeks.
“Considering the current circumstances and the prevalent uncertainty, it is more appropriate for all the shluchim to remain steadfast in their posts,” the letter states. “We emphasize the importance of continuing their vital work, being readily available to support their communities and their families, who undoubtedly need their assistance during these trying times.”
Beyond the personal considerations that vary from one shliach to another, Tzach notes that there is a broader message in the departure of hundreds of shluchim from Eretz Yisroel when Jews worldwide are going to great lengths to arrive there, to participate in the struggle, volunteer, and assist their brothers and sisters.
“In consultation with the organizers of the International Kinus, it was decided that this year a parallel Kinus will take place in Eretz Yisroel. It will be held in tandem with the worldwide conference, featuring practical discussions, an overall view of the shluchim’s work, and a powerful, impressive event.”
This parallel Gala Banquet and event is scheduled for Sunday, the 28th of Cheshvan, aligning with the Gala Banquet in New York.
