-Communicated- (But don’t depair! The Motzei Shabbos and Sunday programs are open to the public)
Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation (CCHF), which will be hosting its very first convention this weekend, has announced that all rooms have been sold out!
CCHF is a one-of-a-kind organization, whose sole objective is to inspire Jews to reach greater heights in shmiras haloshon and bein adam l’chaveiro. Over the twenty-seven years of its existence it has taken the message of the Chofetz Chaim to Klal Yisrael by multiple means: through the printed word, through a host of educational programs and perhaps most notably, the Tisha B’av event. This weekend, they will be spreading his message though a new venue, a weekend retreat.
The convention’s theme, “Live Life Better” points to its aim—to motivate the participants to growth in all areas of their avodas Hashem, with a special focus on interpersonal relationships.
Throughout the weekend the guests will absorb inspiration from multiple sources, ranging from mesmerizing speakers to stirring davening to thought-provoking shiurim to delicious and meaningful Shabbos meals.
The convention is sold out, but CCHF is opening its doors to the general public for the Motzei Shabbos and Sunday programs. The Motzei Shabbos program will begin at 10:30 pm and will be highlighted by a wholly unique presentation fusing a sound theater production with a stirring kumzitz by Simcha Leiner. It promises to be a most memorable experience. The Sunday morning program will begin at 10am and will feature multiple concurrent sessions, each one presented by a celebrated lecturer.
Noted Rabbonim and speakers, such as Rabbi Ephraim Shapiro, Rabbi Yosef Viner, Rabbi Jonathan Rietti, Rabbi Paysach Krohn, Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein and Dr. David Lieberman will speak at these Sunday Mornings sessions. The lectures will cover a wide range of topics including sholom bayis self-esteem, strategies for proper speech, conflict resolution, anger control, personal growth and empathy. The event will be capped off by a keynote speech delivered by noted lecturer, Rabbi Dovid Ozeri.
Attendance is free of charge. Please call to (845) 352-3505, ext 108 to participate in the elaborate Melave Malka, breakfast and lunch (25$ per person, per meal).
