    The annual event—is the largest gathering of rabbis in the world—is aimed at strengthening Jewish awareness and practice around the world.

    This year’s gathering will see 6,500 rabbis and Jewish leaders convene as Israel is at war, and amidst a global Jewish spiritual awakening since Oct. 7, according to a survey of rabbis.

    The 1,400 Chabad emissaries serving in Israel will gather at a parallel conference in Israel; the events will be interlinked virtually.

    Chabad-Lubavitch is the largest Jewish organization in the world, with a network of 3,600 educational, religious, and social service institutions across more than 100 countries and in all 50 states of the United States.

    The program includes:
    A live prayer from the Kotel
    Chabad emissaries share what life’s like on the frontlines and in border cities across Israel
    A message from Chabad rabbis serving in IDF reserves
    Jewish life on campus at this fraught time
    Three generations of Chabad Emissaries to the southern border city of Sderot
    Memorial service for the kedoshim

    “In the face of current adversities, many Jews have discovered a newfound feeling of connection to their faith and identity,” says Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, vice chairman of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement. “The shluchim [emissaries] have been tirelessly at the forefront, fortifying the spirit and resilience of their communities. This year’s Kinus comes at a critical moment in the history of our people, and we hope it serves as a source of energy, connection and vision for the future.”
