steady stream, often urgent in nature.
desecration or threatened closure of a synagogue or Jewish day school,
or the dedication of a new one, protocol and other advice for visits or
meetings with heads of state or government, navigation of visa and
organizational registration or other bureaucratic mazes, preparation of
conferences and events abroad, or even strategic advice on sensitive
diplomatic matters - these are some of the developments that require
appropriate attention and experience, as their impact is crucial to
community well-being everywhere.
Washington Office constantly provides assistance and support in these
areas. Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries and delegations are regularly hosted

Washington Office facilitates meetings with Members of Congress, senior
government officials, diplomats and world leaders.

Chabad-Lubavitch and other major Jewish organizations, but also
national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
the Washington Office has assisted with, organized and participated in
meetings with Heads of State and Government in and from almost 50
countries, and will continue to serve both the national and
international Jewish community in this capacity.
