Detroit Gathers For Great Parade

1,000 men, women, and children gathered in Oak Park, Michigan for a Lag B'Omer parade organized by bochurim of Yeshivas Menachem Mendel.

Close to a thousand men, women, and children gathered together for Lag B’Omer in Oak Park, Michigan.

The Lag B’Omer parade was arranged by the bochurim of Yeshivas Menachem Mendel Detroit, headed by Mendel Azimov, Berel Marozov and Nochum Mayer Rabin, who worked tirelessly to get every detail in order. The Bochurim all participated in the preparation.

Rabbi Schneur Polter was the emcee. The 12 pesukim were said, and tzedaka was given. Pro tem Mayor Karilyn Burns spoke about improvements coming to Oak Park City. Rabbi Bentzion Stein recited the Kapitel of the Rebbe, followed by a dvar torah from Rabbi Shmaya Shmotkin, Mashpia and Menahel in the Lubavitch Yeshiva about achdus yisrael on such a day, and he also spoke about the importance of children having a letter in a Sefer Torah.

Entertainment by Chicago Boyz acrobatic team had the crowd on the edge of their seats. There were snow cones, cotton candy, cookies soda and more for all participants. Then, the parade began with floats of Ois B'sefer Torah, 50 years since mivtzah tefillin, and the 12 pesukim, followed by the crowd and accompanied by the Michigan State Police. The event ended with awesome raffle prizes.
