Moshe Kotlarsky

Chabad global ambassador and vice-chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch

Rabbi Moshe Kotlarksy, Chabad’s most visible global ambassador, certainly keeps busy. He is vice-chairman of Merkos L’inyonei Chinuch, Chabad’s central educational organization serving the thousands of Lubavitch “envoys” who reach out to mostly unaffiliated Jews around the globe. As a top fund-raiser, he oversees scores of religious and educational institutions in some 70 countries. In addition, since 1984, he has arranged the Kinus Hashluchim, the international conference of Chabad emissaries – more than 4,000 attend each year – that occurs each fall in New York. Notably, Kotlarsky cultivated Chabad’s relationship with many global philanthropists, including the late Sammy Rohr, and his son, George Rohr, the investor who funded the movement’s expansion on college campuses, in Eastern Europe and elsewhere.

  • FYI

    It was Rabbi Lipa Brennan who originally approached the Rebbe about an annual kinus, NOT Moshe Kotlarsky, who arranged the kinus until the past few years. Of course Lipa is still very much involved as the annual picture demonstrates, Lipa front and center.. To help bring Moshiach faster, as the Rebbe preached constantly, you must bring the truth back to its source.
    Also your picture of Ivanka Trump at your big event is not how an orthodox Jewish woman should be portrayed (Ivanka claims to be orthodox). Melissa Rivers and Melania Trump knew to come dressed according to orthodox Jewish tradition. Shame on you for not adding the byline for proper dress to your invitation. Gersho Jacobson is turning over in his grave knowing how the algemeiner is now portrayed!
