Chaim Perl is no stranger to the annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries (Kinus Hashluchim), which draws rabbis from around the globe in for several days of learning, camaraderie and rejuvenation. His parents co-direct Chabad of Mineola on Long Island, N.Y. But the 36-year-old father of four does have a unique role when it comes to the event.
Shterna Simmonds, co-director of Chabad Lubavitch of Regina, is getting ready for an extra-special Shabbat. The Canada-based emissary will host a Friday-night dinner on Nov. 17 for women for the fourth year in a row, while her husband, Rabbi Avrohom Simmonds, is in New York participating in the annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries (Kinus Hashluchim), which runs from Nov. 15 to Nov. 20. She invites friends and their daughters from the area to take part in the festive meal.
Ruby Ichikowitz, 23, takes putting on tefillin seriously. He also makes it a practice to take “tefillin selfies” (or what he dubs, “telfies”) when he travels to exciting places in the world, aspiring one day to be able to say that he’s put them on in all seven continents. “I can recount so many times in the last decade that it’s helped or guided me in many different ways,” says the South African native, who is currently living in Israel for the year and working on an MBA.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
