This past Shabbat we help our third annual European Shlichim Convention. After being hosted in Moscow and Munich, this year we convened in Warsaw, Poland.
Our European mishlachat is growing steadily; instead of 3 communities last year, we now have shlichim in 5 cities! We have recently opened Kollels in Brussels and Berlin, who join the veteran kollelim in Moscow, Munich and Warsaw.
This year we gathered 14 shlichim and 19 children for a content-packed weekend.
During the convention we met Rabbi Michael Schudrich, Chief Rabbi of Poland, and Lashk Phishvesky, President of the Council of the Jewish Communities of Poland. We were proud to present Rabbi Schudrich a token of appreciation of our partnership over the years.
The shlichim enjoyed professional units delivered by our staff, as well as opportunities to share ideas and learn from one another. We also visited the Janusz Korczak Orphanage, and help an emotional ceremony there.
As always, the shlichim returned to their communities reinvigorated,
motivated and full of new ideas.
Good luck!
