About the Chabad Chinuch Convention and Retreat

The 4th Annual כינוס מחנכות חב"ד brings together educators from across the world for two days of knowledge, inspiration, networking, and practical teaching solutions. As a fully immersive retreat, the Convention gives 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.

Tending the Garden

Chinuch is the Shlichus of our time.
By dedicating ourselves to this holy work, we are tending to ה's vineyard.
As Chabad educators, we are fulfilling the Rebbe's work.

What are our responsibilities as we tend to this holy garden,
What is uniquely Chabad about the Chinuch that we provide to our children,
And how can we further dedicate ourselves to the Rebbe's vision for Chinuch?

On י"ב תמוז, the day of גאולה for the Frediker Rebbe,
who made Chinuch our top priority,
we will explore these questions and more,
while honoring you, who tend to this precious garden.


The convention program will feature sessions and workshops that highlight the unique responsibilities and challenges 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.

Featured Presenters Include:
Dr. Sara Rosenfeld | Mrs. Malka Touger | Mrs. Dena Gorkin | Mrs. Nami Friedman | Mrs. Rivkah Schack | Mrs. Chana Ginsburg | Dr. Akiva Perlman
And Many More
