The Kinus HaMechanchim program features concurrent professional presentations, workshops and interest group sessions to engage the hundreds of primary educators, elementary school melamdim in attendance. Regardless of what level a mechanech is involved with, he will find substantive, practical chinuch guidance and advice devoted to his interests and needs.
Teachers and principals are encouraged to explore ideas and their application and write to papers for presentation. Some teachers work hard to prepare a presentation about something special they are doing, while others come and pose a dilemma or problem for their colleagues to discuss, regardless both come away enriched. The presenter will learn from his colleagues’ critique what he might do better and the listeners are inspired by a new idea.
Rabbi Nochem Kaplan, Director of the Merkos Chinuch Office said “Mechanchim cherish the professionalism and the camaraderie; they are enamored of the fact that for 48 hours they are totally immersed in a world that is totally dedicated to education along with so many of their colleagues”.
The Kinus will be held on Monday and Tuesday 27th and 28th Menachem Av, August 14th and 15th at the Armon Hotel in Stanford CT. Just an hour from NY, the beautiful facility is uniquely situated to accommodate travelers because of its proximity to the airports and trains.
