Chabad rabbis at Rebbe’s Ohel


Thousands of Chabad-Lubavitch rabbis, in New York City for the 39th annual International Conference of Chabad Emissaries (Kinus Hashluchim), visited the Ohel in Cambria Heights, Queens, resting place of the Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, ZT”L.

Having traveled to New York from throughout the United States and nearly every part of the world, the rabbis delivered handwritten letters, notes and requests for blessings on behalf of their families and communities back home.

Among events during the Kinus Hashluchim, a record 36 Torah scrolls, written for communities around the world that do not yet have a scroll of their own, were completed in the presence of 6,500 rabbis and guests at the concluding banquet on Sunday evening.
