Thousands Of Chabad Shluchim Gather For The Annual Photo Before Kinus Hashluchim
Thousands of Shluchim posed for a group photo in front of Chabad-Lubavitch world headquarters in the Brooklyn borough of New York, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018. They are among more than 5,000 Chabad-Lubavitch rabbinic emissaries and communal leaders from 100 countries hailing from as far away as Laos and Angola, Ghana and Uzbekistan that are gathering for the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries.
The Shluchim will take part in seminars and workshops around combating anti-Semitism, synagogue security, and counseling and guiding congregations in the aftermath of the attacks. They’ll also tackle current topics such as the opioid epidemic, mental health, relationships and inclusion for people with special needs.
Rabbis who serve students on college campuses will take part in a separate track within the conference, discussing issues specifically relevant to them.
