You wrote in the first line of this article, “In an unprecedented display of unity.” This has BH been done several times before.

So it was “not” unprecedented .

By far the best ever. I was truly proud to be a Lubavitcher at this parade (I’m always proud of it) It was such a good feeling to see how the Parade was so organized and fun! and brought back memories as a child in the Lag B’omer parades in the early days in Crown Heights. Kol Hakovod to all the organizers and people involved….and the clowns too!

Dear Rabbi & Mrs. Duchman, Many many thanks for undertaking such an enormous task to recreate a ‘770 style Parade’ here in Los Angeles. You didn’t omit a single detail!! It was extremely organized to the minutest detail…. The parade was so majestic…it evoked memories of 770…people commented they were emotionally touched….. The school kids involved for weeks before in preparation…..this made it a memorable event for them never to be forgotten…. and Charlie Buttons….only you would think of it…………how original, how special!!!
