Yachad Shivtei Yisrael is the theme of Tzeirei Chabad’s Lab B’Omer parades around Eretz Yisrael, totaling 800 separate events involving 250,000 children. This year’s events mark the 31st consecutive year since the late Rebbe ZT”L instructed shluchim to hold Lag B’Omer events.
Tzeirei Chabad officials explain the emphasis is on achdus and this is why children from all walks of Israeli life take part in the parades. As in past years, the main event will take place in Yerushalayim, from Shichun Chabad to Kikar Shabbos, which organizers predict will include 10,000 children. Other large events will take place in Bnei Brak, Ashdod, Tzfas, Haifa and Kfar Saba to name a few of the cities.
