The Great Lag B’omer parade of 5783 united thousands of children for a colossal Hakhel, celebrating the simcha of Rashbi. Enjoy the 1st gallery of pictures capturing the special moments from the parade.
After a long 6-year hiatus, The Great Lag B’Omer Parade was back this year, in honor of Shnas Hakhel.
Taking a cue from the year of Hakhel in 5748-1988 when the Rebbe strongly encouraged making a parade, a grand Lag B’Omer parade was held like the legendary Sunday parades of the past.
Thousands of Jewish children from the Tri-State area and beyond gathered for the parade, held on Tuesday morning in front of 770 Eastern Parkway.
The parade also marked 70 years of Lag B’omer parades and featured creative floats which showcased the history of the parades and of the Rebbe’s mitzvah campaigns.
