Chabad emissaries gather in New York

Follow j. on   and 

Some 4,000 Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries and lay leaders from more than 75 countries gathered in New York for their 29th international conference.

Many of the rabbis attending the Nov. 10-12 event brought relief supplies and funds from their communities around the world to help victims of superstorm Sandy, and they volunteered their time for relief efforts.

Highlights of the conference included a visit to the gravesite of the last Lubavitcher rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson; a group picture in front of the Chabad-Lubavitch worldwide headquarters in the Crown

Heights section of Brooklyn; and the annual banquet featuring an international roll call. — jta
