Photo of The Day
Thousands of women pose for a group photo at 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York outside Chabad-Lubavitch headquarters on Friday, February 10th, 2023. The women are among some 3,900 emissaries and community leaders who are participating in the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries, the conference is aimed at strengthening Jewish awareness and practice around the world. With unseasonably warm weather the annual group photo of the conference was taken outside for the first time this year.
The annual event has added significance as Jewish communities worldwide mark the year of Hakhel, the Jewish Year of “Gathering,”.
The conference also caps a year of growth for Chabad, with a new Chabad center being established or new emissaries being dispatched somewhere in the world weekly and some 38% of American Jews reporting to participate in Chabad programs.
The spotlight will also be shone on Chabad’s humanitarian work in Ukraine, where 192 Chabad emissary families–across 32 of the country’s largest cities–have led relief efforts since the war began.
