CROWN HEIGHTS - Thousands of Jewish leaders closed out their annual Chabad-Lubavitch convention in Crown Heights Sunday with a promise to help the world better understand Judaism.More than 2,000 religious and community members and emissaries from around the world attended a week of workshops and programs in Brooklyn. They say the goal was to arm emissaries with the tools to combat common misconceptions of their faith and its people. Ambassadors travel to countries like China, Russia and Brazil where they say they often encounter problems when trying to communicate with the cultures. They say their goal is to educate and support practicing Jews, not to convert people.

The conference also focused on dealing with terrorism.
