VIDEO: At 770, Thousands Of Chabad Emissaries Gather For A Group Photo

For the 39th annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries, the bleachers are stacked high in front of the famous facade of 770 Eastern Parkway, the location of Chabad-World Lubavitch’s Headquarters (Kinus Hashluchim).

From Fargo, North Dakota, to Auckland, New Zealand, shluchim from more than a hundred nations have come to New York City where, as has been the custom since 1987 for the International Conference, they all assemble for a giant group photograph that is modeled after a large class portrait.

Since the epidemic prevented the photo from being taken the previous two years, this year’s event will see a much larger turnout than usual, making it challenging for photographers to include everyone in their shots.

Rabbi Ezra Wiemer, originally from Fairfax, Virginia, is here for the first time as one of the 120 new couples who have joined the shluchim this year—a startling one every three days.

Being a shliach of the Rebbe has always been Wiemer’s lifelong ambition, he tells Chabad.org.

The young rabbi, who co-directs Chabad of George Mason University with his wife, Bracha, says, “This is part of the pride in being together with so many other shluchim.”

“The image effectively conveys the vitality and strength of every shluchim. I’ve always seen it on people’s walls, so it’s great to be included in it now.
