The convention, which was orchestrated by The Religious Zionist Shlichut Center hosted shlichim from Torah MiTzion, World Bnei Akiva, the Bat Ami national service, the Mizrachi 'Shalhevet' program, Lavi Olami, The Jewish Agency and Morim Shlichim.
The Minister of Education and Diaspora, Naftali Bennet, complimented the shlichim for their willingness to go on shlichut. He emphasized than never in our history have we lost so many of our people to assimilation. He shared that his parents were shlichim themselves, and how he learnt that personal connections and loving each Jew are the keys to a successful shlichut.
Rav Haim Druckman addressed the shlichim and spoke of the importance of leaving our comfort zones in Israel and going on shlichut. Mrs. Miriam Peretz reminded us of the great merit of living a life of shlichut and giving for Am Yisrael. Additional speakers included Gael Grunwald, Chairman of the Settlement Department in the WZO, Rabbi Doron Perez and Rabbi Yechiel Wasserman.
The attendees also enjoyed a satiric play which dealt with being an Israeli abroad confronting the BDS movement.
