Rabbi Shlomo Majeski will read the Rebbe’s letter and Rabbi Dov Greenberg and Mrs. Leah Rubashkin will be the keynote speakers.
The Rebbe established Nshei Chabad in the year 5712. The convention was an event that was very dear to him, so much so that he took special interest in every detail. The Rebbe showed specific interest in the theme of the convention and made sure that every single element was in place.
The Rebbe would send a letter to the convention and address the women and the girls in the main shul in 770 downstairs, and give his holy brochos together with a special message for the upcoming year.
One year, to stress to everyone how dear the Convention is to the Rebbe, the Rebbe instructed Rabbi Groner to go home and take care of their children, so that Mrs. Groner, who had just given birth, would be able to attend the convention.
Nshei Chabad anticipates a rich and memorable Shabbos together, shared with women from all over the community. The inspiring convention is geared toward all Jewish women, from all over, and of all ages! Nshei Chabad is looking forward to a weekend where women will be uplifting each other and empowering each other to bring Moshiach Now!
