Over 250 cars topped with car menorahs, joined nearly 50 mitzvah tanks for the world’s largest Menorah Parade, driving through the streets of New York City.
The annual parade, organized by the Mitzvah Tank Organization, takes the mission of pirsumei nissa, publicizing the miracle of Chanukah, to new levels each year. With tens of thousands viewing the parade as it passed through Brooklyn and Manhattan, it serves as a catalyst for countless Yidden to light the menorah in their homes.
The parade started off in Crown Heights early Thursday evening, passing by 770 and continuing on to Manhattan where they passed by the large Menorah on 5th Ave before spreading out to give out menorahs or heading back to Crown Heights.
The parade was organized by the Mitzvah Tank Organization and under the auspices of Lubavitch Youth Organization.
