Renowned for its Jewish outreach activities all over the world the Chabad has now set a record for the world’s largest selfie ever taken.
It is not clear, however, if the pic qualifies as a selfie since no one can be seen holding a camera from an extended hand.
Over 2, 000 Chabad (also known as Lubavitch) rabbis got together for the group photo which was taken in front of the organization’s international headquarters which are located in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Queens. That put them way ahead of the 1, 151 people who were brought together by Microsoft Bangladesh which also attempted to set the record.
The rabbis were less than half of the 4, 200 who attended the annual meeting which has been held in Brooklyn every year since 1983 when only 65 Rabbis attended.
Rabbi Levi Slonim of the Rohr Chabad Center for Jewish Student Life at Binghamton University in New York said, “We are really one big family. Who better to be with, for what might be a world-record-setting group selfie?”
