About the Chabad Chinuch Convention and Retreat

The 3rd Annual כינוס מחנכי חב”ד brings together educators from across the world for two days of knowledge, inspiration, networking, and practical teaching solutions. For the first time this year, the Convention will be offered as an immersive retreat, giving educators the opportunity to refresh and rejuvenate in an elegant setting, while gaining tools for the coming year.

ברוב עם הדרת מלך: Every Chabad Mechaneches working in any school is invited to join. Workshops and sessions cater to teachers of all levels of experience, subjects and grades, with special tracks geared toward Early Childhood and School Leadership. The Chinuch Banquet and Farbrengen are open to educators and guests who wish to show support for this vital work, and in turn gain strength and inspiration to rededicate themselves to Chinuch in all of its forms.

Monday — Tuesday

July 30-31 2018

Convention Theme 5778
אל תגעו במשיחי

Meeting Today's Challenges
Teaching Today's Treasures

Today's educators teach the children who are bringing משיח,
a generation with extraordinary כוחות - and unique challenges.
It is up to us to recognize our students' unmatched כוחות
— as חז”ל say: אל תגעו במשיחי: אלו תינוקות של בית רבן
and to bring them to fruition through the שליחות of חינוך.


The convention program will feature sessions and workshops to highlight the unique task of an educator today. Sessions include practical workshops offered by successful educators, presentations by psychologists and other experts in meeting students’ needs, inspirational talks and structured networking.

Workshops will be offered in parallel tracks to choose from, with unique programming for School Leaders and Early Childhood educators throughout the two days. Perks such as lavish catered meals, women’s swimming, and sessions focusing on a teacher’s physical and spiritual well-being, will leave Mechanchos feeling refreshed, appreciated, and ready for a new school year.
