Mendel Lerner reminded attendees of the bochurim’s responsibility in organizing the event and ensuring its success. He reiterated that the parade has always relied on the dedication and effort of the bochurim.

Chaim Piekarski urged the bochurim to contribute their time and energy to make the event even more extraordinary than previous years. He encouraged everyone to get involved as soon as possible, particularly in the fundraising and practical aspects of the parade.

Mendel Spritzer addressed the organizational side of the parade, stressing the importance of effective coordination. He discussed the various tasks that needed to be assigned and coordinated among the bochurim, emphasizing the need to distribute the workload effectively.
