90th National Agudah convention 2012 postponed!! due to Hurricane Sandy.

 After consulting with Gedolei yisroel, The 90th national Agudah convention 2012 has been postponed and rescheduled. The new date for the convention will be 15-17 teves, December 28-30. It was originally supposed to take place on November 22-25. It has been pushed off. The Convention will take place at the New Brunswick Hilton in NJ. Click HERE for convention updates and program.

Upon further consultation with gedolei yisroel the Agudah will sponsor a Kinnus Chizuk vehisoirerus on Monday 27 Cheshvan (November 12), at Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin, 2913 Avenue L, Brooklyn.

In a letter written by Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zweibel to acheinu Bnei Yisroel, He wrote about the trail of devastation that Hurricane Sandy has left in its wake. many challenges remain in helping out our fellow yidden who were affected by the storm. Our focus must be on those who are in need to be mishtatef b'tzaarom and do all in our power to help them.
To be sure, the Agudah convention is a setting where Torah leaders and anshei maaseh gather to discuss and take action on the pressing issues of the day. But the scars and wounds left by the storm are still too raw,the need for singular focus is still too urgent for us to proceed as originally planned.


  1. I dont get why the convention was pushed off. It would have been closer to Sandy and the Agudah could have made a huge campaign while it is still fresh in peoples minds.

  2. It is very simple. There were not enough people who were going to go. And the bottom line is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  3. Agudah conventions are amazng! may they have much hatzlacha!
