Due to COVID, Toronto has been under one of the longest and strictest lockdowns in North America, so the bachurim in Toronto Zal and Mesivta on their own initiave decide to make this Lag B’omer a joyous and memorable one for the community.

The Bachurim spent days and sleepless nights making the floats for the parade, Shmuli Wudowsky directed the project from start to finish, whether it was figuring out the Trucks, the money, the logistics, the police, and much more.

Each float represented a different Mivtza of the Rebbe, one was Shabbos, another was Teffilin, Moshiach, Kashrus and Chinuch.

“A big thanks goes to Motty Gorman, Naftali Junik, Mendel Moully, Dovid Hagege, and Menachem Drukier for all their hard work,” organizers said.
