Agudah Convention Highlights 2018

Over 35,000 people took part in this year’s Agudah Convention, whether in person or over the livestream broadcast, held this last weekend in Stamford, Connecticut. This year’s convention theme, “Moving Forward,” was the common thread of the convention: Moving forward in Torah learning, moving forward in Avodas Hashem, and moving forward in our relationships with others. But also, moving forward with askanus, moving forward with advocacy, and moving forward in combating the threats to Klal Yisroel.

The Agudah Convention is the place where the Torah world in the United States goes to discuss its challenges, find solutions, and forge a path forward. Indeed, the convention sessions included, among others, such diverse topics as anti-Semitism, connecting with Hashem, the state of mental health in the frum world, audience submitted Q & A for gedolei Yisroel, Chinuch, acting as Bnei Torah in the secular work environment, and exploring difficult family situations.
