As the 25th-annual International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries draws to a close, the almost 3,000 attendees – who flew in from locations spanning the globe – will meet up with their visiting lay leaders and make their way from the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y., to the New York State National Guard Armory for the conference’s concluding banquet.
The highlight of the conference, this year’s banquet will feature an address from Professor David Luchins, chair of Touro College’s department of political science and a longtime advisor to the late New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, about his own family’s interactions with the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.
The keynote speech will be delivered by Rabbi Yehuda Shemtov, director of Chabad of Bucks County, Pa.
The newly-knighted Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin of Ilford, England, and conference administrator Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, vice chairman of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of Chabad-Lubavitch, will also speak.
