A crowd of 20,000 people united in Crown Heights, Brooklyn on Monday to pray for the country of Israel and the Jewish people, currently under attack and engagedin a war with Hamas.

The event, organized in less than 24 hours by a group of Jewish activists and organizations, highlighted the Rebbe’s response to war and conflict in Israel, over the years.

Through a series of JEM videos, the Rebbe‘s emphasis on increasing in Torah, Mitzvos, rallies for children and joy during times of crisis and tragedy, was highlighted.

Weaving the event together was MC Chony Milecki, and heartfelt as well as joyous and upbeat Chasidishe niggunim were led by singer Benny Friedman.

As per the Rebbe’s directives, children recited the 12 Pesukim and the crowd united in heartfelt prayer by reciting Tehillim.

Volunteers walked through the crowd offering children pennies to give Tzedaka as well.

Following the program, the crowd united in exuberant dancing, breaking all barriers and hopefully reaching the Heavens to break all boundaries through joy.
