Live From Borough Park: Lag B'Omer Parade on 13th Ave

A grand celebration in honor of the heilige Rashbi will take place together with R' Avrohom Fried and the Yiddish Nachas Choir, a brand new Yeedele puppet show, special "guest" ventriloquist, and world renowned children's maggid, R' Leibish Lish.

The annual kinnus of Yiddishe kinderlach of Boro Park has become a highlight of the year, and this year's event promises to be bigger and better!

For many years, the event was headlined by HoRav Moshe Wolfson, shlit”a, who is in need of a refuah sheleiemah.

"The Rashbi is here, at this kinnus" HoRav Wolfson would tell the children, giving them chizuk. And since the Rashbi is at the event, everyone wants to be there too, to be part of the achdus, to daven and to reap brochos. The koach if thousands of children reciting Tehillim together as one for the yeshu’ah of Klal Yisroel, is outstanding.

"Our children need this," said Rabbi Aron Ginsberg, the menahel of the event. "They need to feel proud and happy in their Yiddishkeit, and nothing gives it to them more than a gathering like this."

Indeed, this year the organizers have moved the event to the center of Boro Park, pulling out the stops to make this event unforgettable. While the children enjoy the entertainment, the adults have a deeper appreciation for the meaningful messages that come alive in such an exciting way.

The boys will march in the annual parade from 14th Avenue and 47th Street to the kinnus on 13th Avenue.

Enterance to women's seating area will be on 13th ave and 46th st.
Enterance to men's seating area will be on 13th ave and 48th st.

The stage will be centered at 47th Street, between the boy’s and girl’s seating and everyone will be able to see iyh.

The march will start at 4:30 iy"H and the program will be from 5:00 until 7:00 promptly, with every moment packed with meaning excitment and simcha. This is a program you don't want to miss!
