For the second consecutive year, a parade of Mitzvah Tanks will head out from the Rebbe‘s Ohel on Wednesday, Yud Shevat, to celebrate 73 years of the Rebbe’s leadership.
The parade will be leaving from the Ohel on Wednesday at 11:30 AM and will head to locations across Queens and Long Island.
Over the years of the Rebbe’s nesius, Yud Shevat was celebrated with Tank Parades a number of times, with the most memorable being Yud Shevat 5750, when the Rebbe watched as the 40 tanks passed by 770. In the years since, parades were held on a number of years, especially those marking a ’rounded’ number.
Heading out on Wednesday morning, the tanks will travel to different points across Queens and Long Island, with one tank traveling to Manhattan. There, the bochurim will spread out on the nearby streets, offering passersby the chance to put on Tefillin or do other mitzvos, and spreading the Rebbe’s message about the imminent arrival of Moshiach.
