West Coast JLI Regional Conference
Eighty shluchim from the state of California gathered last Sunday at the stunning home of Chabad of North Hollywood for the regional conference sharing ideas for success in their adult education programming.
The new conference format – eleven regional conferences instead of one big gathering in New York, was well received by the Shluchim. Rabbi Chaim Mentz of Bel Air, CA shared, “It is easy to relax and listen and the smaller crowd gives a greater chance to get questions answered.”
Shluchim from communities big and small shared best practices in marketing strategy and pedagogy and served on panels addressing key questions from the participants. Presenters included: Rabbis Zalman Gordon (Redondo Beach), Mordechai Kirschenbaum (West Hollywood), Shmuel Fuss (Riverside), Shmuel Kornfeld (Burbank), Yitzi Magalnic (Rancho Palos Verdes) and Shimon Posner (Rancho Mirage).
Rabbi Naftali Silberberg, co-director of JLI’s curriculum development team presented “Eight Steps to Presenting a Powerful Shiur or Lecture” and Rabbi Zalman Abraham, JLI’s Director of Branding and Strategic Planning spoke on “Your Marketing Success Check List.” Shluchim also received a giant dose of inspiration from keynotes, Rabbi Shlomo Cunin, Regional Director of Chabad of California, as well as, Rabbis Mendel Lipskier and Chaim Mentz.
The next conference for the Mid-Atlantic U.S. region is scheduled for Monday, 29 Iyar/June 3rd at Chabad of Maryland headquarters in Baltimore.
