The Chabad-Lubavitch hasidic movement opened its annual emissaries' conference in New York this weekend. About 4,000 Chabad emissaries are participating in the conference, during which they will engage in a range of issues affecting Jewish life around the world.

The Chabad-Lubavitch Headquarters published data on the initiative began by the Lubavitcher Rebbe to provide a place for Jews wherever they may be around the world.

Chabad currently has 4,552 emissaries operating in 90 countries around the world. There are 980 Chabad houses in the US and Canada alone.

There are currently 336 Chabad houses in the State of Israel. They are operated by 600 emissaries, and hold events for Jews around the year.

Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, the director of the conference said: "In recent years the mission of the Chabad emissaries has emphasized depth, on campuses, with youth and children, and with adults. In many palces the Chabad emissaries are the only Jewish voices in the area, whcih makes them representatives of Judaism with regards to the reawakened anti-Semitism and and the increasing hostility to Israel. Chabad emissaries see the importance of instilling Jewish pride, along with providing information to students to help them withstand these attacks."
