This Wednesday evening, hundreds of children and their parents will join together in front of 770 for a viewing of the Rebbe’s Lag B’omer parade.
On Eastern Parkway, at the exact spot where the actual parade took place, schoolchildren from all over Crown Heights will join together to listen, answer questions, and win awesome prizes. A special raffle will be made on a coin minted for the 1990 Lag B’omer parade.
This event is the culmination of a successful year for Connection Point, a JEM initiative that now has 37 schools worldwide engaged. Connection Point encourages children to watch and listen to the Rebbe, and provides the tools necessary for them to understand. The children watch the video, answering questions as they go, and then enter into a raffle for some great prizes.
At the event, 20 incredible prizes will be raffled off. Parents are encouraged to attend as well, and every child who brings a parent will get an extra two tickets. Additionally, communities around the world will be hosting such events in connection with Lag B’omer.
Participating schools include:
Lamplighters Yeshivah – Girls
Lamplighters Yeshivah – Boys
ULY – Crown Street
ULY – Ocean Parkway
Oholei Torah – 8th Grade
