In an exciting move, the Kinus Hashluchos Gala Banquet on Sunday, January 31, (21 Shevat) will take place at the massive 69th Regiment Armory on Bedford Avenue between Union and President Streets. This is possibly the last time the armory will host the Kinus, as it is slated for demolition and redevelopment.
The domed drill hall will be converted to a upscale banquet hall to honor the incredible Shluchos and their guests.
All of the events on Thursday, Friday and Motzei Shabbos leading up to the banquet will take place in the spacious Armory as well. Events on Sunday morning will take place in Oholei Torah to allow for time to set up for the banquet.
The Kinus will be held in Brooklyn on 18-22 Shevat 5776 (January 28-February 1, 2016).
