Kiruv Training Seminar

On Motza’ei Shabbos, February 24th at 8:30 PM, there will be a Kiruv Training Seminar at Congregation Ahavas Yisroel 147-02 73rd in Kew Gardens Hills.

The presenters will be Rabbi Chaim Sampson and Rabbi Eliyahu Bergstein from the movie Inspired Too. I spoke to Rabbi Sampson this week and I think the seminar will be very informative and useful.
