Some 3,000 Chabad rabbis and communal leaders converged on Brooklyn for an annual conference.

The International Conference of Chabad Lubavitch Emissaries, colloquially known as the “Shluchim” conference, began Thursday and will run through Monday. It will be highlighted by a banquet Sunday night that is expected to draw some 4,000 people to the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, N.J. It will be the first time the banquet is held outside New York.

The banquet will honor Sami Rohr, who has given tens of millions of dollars to Chabad and other educational causes.

Two of my sons and my son-in-law are in there, um, somewhere.

FRmail me to be added or removed from this Judaic/pro-Israel/Russian Jewry ping list.

Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.

The REAL "Religion of Peace"! The Chabad Rabbi in the town where I live is one of the nicest, most welcoming religious figures I have EVER met.
