Agudah tweaks Theme for upcoming 90th convention in light of current events

Besides for postponing the 90th national convention of Agudas yisroel due to Hurricane Sandy, the Agudah has changed the theme as well. The initial theme was:
                                 "Strength in Growth....Challenges in Growth"
                                             ככוכבי השמים לרב
However in the aftermath of hurricane Sandy and the war with Hamas in Gaza it was decided to change the Theme to one that reflects on the current situation
                                                         !שומרי אחינו אנחנו
          "Our responsibilities to one another in times of challenge"

"The Flood of Chesed that followed the Deluge of water in coastal New York, and the storming of the heavens in prayer of teshuva that the raining missiles on Israel evoked, were eloquent testimony to the interrelation of all Jews  It is a kinship that must always define us. In times of calm no less in times of turmoil."

 Thursday evening session will feature a centennial banquet celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Agudas Yisroel in Kattowice, Poland.
The convention will take place December 27-30, 2012 Hilton East brunswick ,NJ

  1. The Theme is just a theme. The gedolim who spoke at the convention always remarked how their speech was not in line with the theme.
