    Shluchim in Russia’s smaller cities face unique challenges the likes of which their colleagues living in larger cities like Moscow or Petersburg usually do not experience. It was with this in mind that a special conference was arranged last week for these shluchos, many of whom are the only observant family in their city. The Conference took place in the city of Kazan, capital of Russia’s Muslim republic of Tatarstan. Local Shluchim Rabbi Yitzchak Gorelik and his wife Mrs. Chani hosted the grand, inspiring event.

    The conference took place with the encouragement and blessing of Rabbi Berl Lazar, Senior Shliach and Chief Rabbi of Russia. Rabbi Lazar reiterated the importance of the Shluchos having this special opportunity to learn from each other, to acquire new skills, and to experience an uplifting weekend for the soul, filled with learning, davening, and farbrenging together.

    The conference began with the Mayor of Kazan speaking to the Shluchos about the important role they play in the revival of Jewish life, while peppering his talk with words in Yiddish and Hebrew. They were then treated to a tour of Jewish life in Kazan which includes a variety of programs and institutions for all ages and stages. Shluchos were inspired and uplifted to see the work of their fellow Shluchim for the Jews of Russia. They surely gained new ideas to bring back home to their cities.

    The four day conference program was packed with classes and workshops for the dozens of participants, during which time there was also a parallel program for the young girls who arrived together with their mothers. The girls’ program was run by the junior Shluchos themselves. When the four days of the Kinnus were over, the Shluchos returned to their respective cities with renewed energy and enthusiasm to continue being a beacon of light in their corner of Russia.
