Dear Friend,

Thanksgiving is here, and more than 46.9 million Americans are on the road, many of them celebrating the holiday with family and friends. Sitting around tables laden with home-cooked delicacies, they’ll be sharing words of thanks to G‑d and a tradition that cuts to the core of the religious and moral underpinnings of the American republic, and its culture of freedom and compassion.

Several thousand travelers will also converge in New York for a rather large (and unique) annual gathering: the International Conference of Chabad-Lubavitch Emissaries. They’ll join colleagues who have followed the call of the Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory—to spread the light of Judaism in places like Vietnam, Alaska, Nigeria and Croatia (to name a few). Sitting around tables laden with kosher delicacies, they’ll share words of thanks to G‑d and a tradition that traces back to the teachings of Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov, who taught the importance of each and every individual, and the preciousness of joyous service of the Almighty.

No matter if you’ll be spending Thanksgiving at home or with friends, make sure to clear Sunday evening to tune in and watch the live feed of the banquet, always an inspiring and interesting event.
