Kinus Theme: כי גבר עלינו חסדו

Under the constant barrage of communal and familial responsibilities—of budgets and crises, deadlines and projects and all the activities that consume our days—it can be hard to step back and appreciate the chessed that pervades our lives. This year, in the spirit of the Rebbe’s Kapitel, we dedicate the Kinus to recognizing the privilege we have to be part of the community of the Rebbe’s shluchim. That kindness exists on three levels. It begins within ourselves, but extends far beyond our homes.

החסד שנעשה עמנו

The kindness done to us. When the Rebbe chose us to represent him—to be his shluchim, he gave us the greatest kindness we could ever hope to receive. With this gift, the Rebbe fills and fuels our existence with the the deepest sense of purpose, as the agents facilitating the דירה בתחתונים and preparing the world לקבלת פני משיח צדקנו.

החסד בינינו

The kindness within the family of shluchim. It is the greatest blessing to have brothers and sisters to rely on; who are there for us in our moments of need and in our moments of triumph and joy. The bond, brotherhood and alliance which exists among the family of shluchim remind us that we are part of something greater than ourselves. We are not individuals, alone on our islands, but a united family that loves and supports one another.

החסד על ידינו

The Rebbe’s kindness done through our hands. The impact we have on our communities—on the individuals and families that pass through our doors—is the ultimate act of chessed we can hope to achieve. To give a fellow Jew the chance to do a mitzvah, to study Torah, to be connected to the Rebbe, is priceless. It is the greatest gift we can give.

Focusing on this awesome chessed, appreciating that our lives are dominated, overwhelmed by chessed—from the Rebbe to us, from one shliach to another, and from us to our communities—gives us a new appreciation and joy for our avodas hakodesh.

Thanks to dozens of dedicated individuals, preparations for this year’s Kinus are well underway. We are looking forward to deliver a series of inspirational sessions, workshops, and farbregens that explore and expand upon the Rebbe’s empowering message. It is our hope and expectation that this year’s Kinus will serve as a powerful reminder to each shliach of the awesome privilege he has been given, and will allow him to return to his shlichus clear-eyed and invigorated.
