Shterna Kaminker of Chabad of Hackensack joined more than 3,000 women leaders from all 50 states and 100 countries for the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Women Emissaries (Kinus Hashluchos) in Brooklyn. Topics included Jewish education, mental health, fundraising, counseling, and inclusion. The annual event is aimed at reviving Jewish awareness and practice around the world. “Attending the conference was reinvigorating,” Ms. Kaminker said. “Seeing so many women leaders in one place gives you energy for the entire year.”
A visit to the gravesite of Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson in Queens and a gala banquet were highlights of the five-day conference.
The conference is a tribute to the legacy of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, the Lubavitcher rebbe’s wife, and coincides with the anniversary of her death.
