14 Toronto Chabad houses teamed up to create the city’s largest Mitzvah Tank Parade in history, in honor of the Rebbe‘s 120th birthday, and in memory of local bochur Meir Likhovetski a”h.
The parade took place on Sunday, Beis Nissan, ahead of Yud Alef Nissan, when chassidim and Yidden around the world will mark 120 years since the Rebbe’s birth. It’s a day of celebration, and a time to reflect on the tremendous impact the Rebbe has had on world Jewry over the last century.
During the parade a quick stop was made at the the home of Meir Likhovetski A”H where the tank that was dedicated in his memory and was brought all the way from New York just for the parade was officially dedicated, Meir’s family’s Shliach Rabbi Karpilovsky shared a few words, and the Bochurim broke out into a spontaneous Ani Maamin.
Many of Meirs family and friends joined the dedication.
Following the parade, each tank went to their respective community for Mivtzoim where thousands of Matzah, Pesach guides and opportunity to put on Teffilin were given out.
Chabad Houses and mosdos joining the parade included Beth Joseph Chabad, Uptown Chabad, Chabad of Midtown, Chabad of Downtown, Chabad Flamingo, Chabad of Thornhill Woods, Chabad of Woodbridge, Cheder Chabad, JYN, Chabad Southern Ontario, Chabad of Maple, Chabad of Markham, JNY, JRCC, Maon Noam synagogue Yeshivas and Mesivtas Lubavitch Toronto.
