U. S. Agudath Israel National Convention Chairmen Announced

by A. Sapir

A. Joseph Stern and Michael Kaiser will serve as chairmen at Agudath Israel of America's upcoming National Convention, which will open on 16 Kislev (November 25) at the Garden State Convention Center in Somerset, New Jersey.

The four-day gathering, which will mark the organization's 77th year of service to the Jewish community, is expected to attract thousands of Jews from across the country.

Mr. Stern and his wife, Ruchi, respected members of the Edison/Highland Park, New Jersey community, devote substantial amounts of time, effort and resources to a host of worthy Torah causes.

An active partner in the founding of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yaakov Yosef in Edison, N.J., Mr. Stern also founded Agudath Israel of Edison/Highland Park and Yeshiva Shaarei Tzion, an elementary yeshiva with more than 300 students. Mr. Stern also serves as president of Shalom Torah Centers and is on the Board of Governors of Bais Medrash Govoha of Lakewood and the Board of Directors of Mesorah Heritage Foundation.

A long-time resident of Toronto, Canada, Michael Kaiser and his wife Judy are active members of Agudath Israel of Toronto, and are ardently involved in many community projects and programs, including the founding of a much-utilized community library that is housed in the Agudah shul.

Many mosdos and other worthy causes also benefit from the Kaisers' solid support. Mr. Kaiser serves on the board of Yeshivas Ner Israel of Toronto, is actively involved in Daf Yomi, and delivers a Daf Yomi shiur in his shul.

Mr. Stern, the convention chairman, will greet the guests at the Keynote Motzoei Shabbos session, and Mr. Kaiser, the co-chairman, will welcome them Thursday night.

This year's Convention, whose theme is "A Time of Prosperity, A Time of Need: Confronting the Contradictions," is being held from Thursday, November 25, through Sunday, November 28.

The Agudath Israel gathering will feature major addresses by a number of Gedolei Torah and respected rabbonim, as well as a host of roundtable forums, special sessions and shiurim.

Tickets must be reserved in advance for the Thursday afternoon opening session, Thursday night's plenary session and the keynote Motzoei Shabbos event, in order to assure every participant a seat.
