In honor of Lag B’Omer and Shnas Hakhel, the NCFJE organization organized a spectacular program at the Old Boys and Girls School Field in Crown Heights on Thursday.
“It is a venue where we were zoche to have the Rebbe visit the Lag B’Omer outings numerous times, most recently in 5751,” said Rabbi Shimon Hecht, organizer and emcee of the program.
“We wanted a location where we can accommodate more children and adults than usual to join together in the spirit of Hakhel, but still have a location where the Rebbe joined us and we felt this would be the most appropriate and accommodating space.”
The program was headlined by a Sicha from Lag B’Omer 5727, in which the Rebbe explains the connection between Lag B’Omer and Hakhel, and was recently remastered by JEM.
It also featured Flippenout – high-flying, world-record holding trampoline athletes, and Chaim Fogelman, who were joined by special guests for a performance celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 12 Pesukim.
