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, of their own initiative, decided to make this Lag BaOmer 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, including figuring out the trucks, the money, the logistics, the police, and much more.
Special thank you to Mendle Moully, Dovid Hegege, Menachem Drukier, Motty Gorman, Naftali Junik, Sholom Rappaport and many others who worked day and night to make this project a reality.
The car parade drove through the streets of Toronto, cheering residents who have been under lockdown for many months.
Each float represented a different Mivtza of the Rebbe, one was Shabbos, another was Teffilin, Moshiach, Kashrus and Chinuch.
