[PHOTOS IN EXTENDED ARTICLE]
Thousands of Shluchim posed for a group photo in front of Chabad-Lubavitch world headquarters in the Brooklyn borough of New York, Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017. They are among more than 5,000 Chabad-Lubavitch rabbinic emissaries and communal leaders from 90 countries hailing from as far away as Bangkok and Kenya that are gathering for the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries.
One highlight each year is the traditional group photo of thousands of Shluchim at the front of the building on 770 Eastern Parkway – Chabad’s central headquarters.
This year, for the 13th year, tens of thousands of viewers from around the world will be able to view the International Kinus HaShluchim banquet live – here on YWN – on a broadcast made possible by the organizers of the Kinus. The highlight is always the traditional roll call of countries and regions which is followed by spirited dancing.
As we have in the past years, YWN will be bringing you thousands of photos, as well as extensive video and photo coverage from the massive event.
