    A grand Lag B’Omer parade will be held this year on the streets of Crown Heights, with the participation of local Yeshivos, followed by a rally at 770.

    Every year, on Lag B’Omer, hundreds of rallies are held around the world, in accordance with the Rebbe’s directive to do so in honor of Rashbi’s celebration.

    In Crown Heights, however, the parade in front of 770 usually only takes place if Lag B’Omer occurs on a Sunday to allow children from public schools to participate. In other years, a gathering was held in the park for neighborhood children, but no parade was held.

    That all changed two years ago. When a group of students, in collaboration with Tzivos Hashem, decided to bring the annual parade every year to Crown Heights as well. It takes place in the pattern of other parades around the world, with children marching through the city streets. But the main parade in front of the 770 continued to take place exclusively on Sundays.

    Last year, when there was a general closure following the Corona virus, the procession took place online. This year, on Lag B’Omer 5771, there will be a grand parade, with children from all the Yeshivos marching on the streets of Crown Heights.

    The parade will take place on Friday 18 Iyar, Lag B’Omer. Each Yeshiva will march from their building, in the direction of 770. Boys from Oholei Torah will make a slight turn to allow them to join the procession in the streets. The procession will be joined by cars playing music and secured by local security organizations.

    Each participant in the parade will receive a T-shirt and a hat from Tzivos Hashem. For each rank different color Yarmulkes were produced, with their symbols clearly marked, so that each child would proudly display the rank of the armies of his name. They will also receive a balloon with the emblem of Tzivos Hashem and Lag B’Omer in the same color as their rank.

    A special addition to this year’s parade will be the unique gift given to each child who participates, in the form of a comic book in English or Yiddish, produced especially for the parade, and a coin in an exact replica of what the Rebbe distributed at the 1957 parade.

    The processions will reach 770 and there all the children will meet. There they will participate in a rally that will be organized and operated by the NCFJE.
