A massive Medura lit up the sky in the Town of Palm Tree (formally known as Kiryas Joel) on Wednesday evening, as tens of thousands of Satmar Chassidim joined their Rebbe, HaRav Aharon Teitelbaum, as they celebrated Lag Baomer.
The event in Kiryas Joel is believed to be the largest individual Lag Baomer Medura and celebration in the United States.
Attached are videos and photos of the massive event, which is held every year outside the Satmar Shul on Garfield Road.
