Mrs. Devorie Kreiman, who served as the principal of Bais Rebbe Junior High School in Los Angeles for 12 years, will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Kinus Hashluchos, the annual convention of Chabad women on Shlichus.

Taking place in Brooklyn, NY, in connection with the yartzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson OBM, wife of the Rebbe, the 4 day conference will unite Shluchos and some of their community members from around the globe.

Kreiman, an educational consultant and leader of teacher training workshops in Los Angeles and New York and the author of The Bas Mitzva Notebook, will be speaking at the Kinus Melava Malka and Motzoei Shabbos program held at Oholei Torah.

Titled "Making Each Day Count As A Step Toward The Next One," she will share some of the extraordinary challenges and losses she has faced, the organizers of Merkos L'inyonei Chinuch said.

She will relate how she gleans inspiration and strength to overcome the impossible using bitachon as a vaulting pole to turn challenges into accomplishments, they said in an email to Shluchos.

Her 23-year-old son Yossi Kreiman, an ordained rabbi and a chosson at the time, passed away almost 3 years ago in an accident.

Drawing on faith and humor, his mother has since been speaking about her personal journey and how one can stand up and live life in the face of helplessness and deep sadness.

Here is her talk at the National Jewish Retreat:
