I would recomend both. There is something amazing about the group shot. So impressive.. then have individual pictures in a slide show "pop" out from the group showing each one. Reply

challenges I know the feeling of pride and connection to the Rebbe by being able to be included in the picture of the Sheluchim or Sheluchot. Due to the large Ken ahora size of the group I think it is time to alter the format. With everyone crowded into one picture even with zoom lenses and panoramic view the sheluchim are minimized to the point of being unrecognizable. My suggestion is to separate the group into continents, or to make a photo montage or video of the individual photos of each shaliach, so that the identity of each shaliach is recognizable. The feeling of unity will still be there. I would be curious about other people's reaction to this. Reply

I agree, I would like to be able to see familiar faces and family members. Although, this is an amazing picture!!!! Reply
