In our day to day interactions, we are frequently faced with situations which warrant a call to a Rav, whether for clarification or a psak.

We are fortunate to have saught after Rabbonim join us, to lead general and focus sessions. There will be one focus session on Handling Diversity, and a general session covering Hilchos Shabbos.

If there are any areas that you would like the Rabbonim to discuss or have a particular question please enter them here. Submitting your questions in advance will allow the Rabbonim to prepare their presentations to include your topic.

We received an outpouring of incredible and uplifting stories filled with Hashgacha Pratis, Ahavas Yisrael and Bitachon. Thank you to everyone who shared!

We wish we could feature every story and celebrate each accomplishment. Even if yours isn't featured, please know how grateful we are that you shared your story.

Monday, Chof Bais Shvat Visit to the Ohel

Friday, January 17, 2020 - 10:19 am
Posted by The Kinus Office


One of the most anticipated events of the Kinus is the visit to the Ohel and the reading of the the Pan Kloli on behalf of the family of Shluchim.

In response to a Hisorerus from Shluchos around the world our Chof Bais Shvat Program/Hachana L'Ohel will take place at the Ohel. A one hour Hachana is being carefully planned for the family of shluchos to visit the Ohel and our Rebbetzin.

An additional tent and chairs will be rented to ensure that everyone can be comfortable. Select clips of Sichos and nigunim along with words of hisorerus presented on high quality audio and visual will set the tone for an uplifting program.

All Ohel buses will depart together at 8:00am from the corner of President Street and Kingston Avenue. The buses will not be staggered as in the past in order to accommodate that the program begins at 9:30am.

At the conclusion of the program which will be about one hour the Pan Kloli will be read and broadcasted in the tent. All Shluchos will then 'walk around' the Ohel in the same manner dollars were received. You can plan a longer visit on another day, or stay later to read your pan.

It is recommended that you change to non-leather shoes before you leave the tent. Preferred seating will be prepared for mothers with little ones, elderly, or disabled to then enter the Ohel first.

May we be Zoche to have all our communal and personal requests fulfilled in a revealed manner and celebrate this Kinus reunited

Are We Missing the Point?
Creating ‘varmkeit’ in our communities while running a professional Mosad.

New: Focus Sessions

Posted by The Kinus Office



This year, the kinus is initiating a novel alternative to workshops. We will be offering focus sessions, a panel of sessions created to give Shluchos in-depth insight centered on essential topics, such as Hiskashrus, Chinuch, and Bitachon.

There will be 6 elective sessions offered simultaneously, each on the same theme, presented with a different perspective. We will focus on strengthening ourselves, our families, and finally, our communities. We invite you to join us as we uncover the essence of our mission as Shluchos.

Does Your Story Inspire?

Thursday, January 9, 2020 - 10:44 am
Posted by The Kinus Office


As you know, the theme of the Kinus is Ahavas Yisroel and we are looking for a unique or meaningful moment of a special physical or spiritual connection you may have with someone in your community. You certainly have an impact and effect on the people around you, and we ask you to share one of your unique effects or impacts with us.

If you or a fellow Shlucha have a uplifting story you would be willing to share that will help inspire the message of Ahavas Yisrael, please let us know as soon as possible. We are also looking for a story that is connected to Mikvah and the mitzvah of Taharas Hamishpacha.

Weather your story sounds like one we may have heard before, or it has an unexpected twist or a unique perspective we would love to hear about it.

Please e-mail your story or any questions to: Many thanks for taking time and effort to share.
