Lubavitch Gallery Photo

Constant Presence
Photograph by Carolyn Drake

A snow-specked portrait of the late Lubavitch leader Menachem Mendel Schneerson decorates the side of a "mitzvah tank"—a mobile synagogue—parked in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Lubavitch emissaries, or outreach workers, drive the vehicle to various parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, where they conduct religious activities and teach less observant Jews about their faith. Schneerson, still fondly called the rebbe by his devoted followers, died in 1994 without naming a successor. His image and teachings remain omnipresent in the Lubavitch community.
