United for the Cause Photograph by Carolyn Drake
Their hair covered in wigs, female emissaries gather for a portrait at their annual convention in Crown Heights. Schneerson vastly expanded the practice of sending emissaries out into the world to spread Orthodox Jewish faith. He encouraged wives to participate as emissaries along with their husbands, and advised women to pursue the mission in a distinctly feminine way, offering instruction on how to keep a kosher kitchen, how to follow the laws of family purity, and how to raise spiritual children.
