Benny Friedman Sings in L.A. for Lag B’Omer Parade

by Jewish Music Reporter May 04, 2010

Los Angeles, CA — More than 4,000 men, women and children joined Chabad at Schneerson Square in Los Angeles for a grand Lag B’Omer parade on Sunday.

Pico Boulevard was closed between Doheny and Crest for the massive Lag b’Omer Unity Street Fair and Concert.

A project of “Chabad Youth Programs” of Chabad Of California, the festivities commenced at 10:30 am with a parade down Pico Boulevard that included flag-waving children, a real marching band and colorful parade floats built by local schools and organizations.

Rabbi Boruch Shlomo Cunin, head of West Coast Chabad-Lubavitch, addressed the crowd. “Today we celebrate Jewish unity and our love for one another. Today we stand before our Rebbe at Schneerson Square and we celebrate our children, the Rebbe’s precious gems. We are confident that our acts of goodness and kindness, love and unity, will bring about the immediate redemption of the Jewish people.”

Clowns and jugglers entertained the youngsters while older kids tested their skill climbing the rock wall and enjoying one of the many game booths. The petting zoo hosted a menagerie of animals for the kids as well as pony rides. A variety of exciting carnival rides provided fun for the entire family.

One of the highlights at the outdoor festival was a live concert by the world’s newest Jewish-Chasidic singer Benny Friedman, and the world-famous comic entertainer Mendy Pellin.

The MC was Rabbi Mintz Shliach to Bell Air California.

A Special Thanks to the Shluchim and Bocuhrim of Yeshivas Ohr Elchanan Chabad, Leibele Cohen of Cheder Menachem, Yossi Burstein, Chaim Cunin, Yanky Baitelmen, and Shalom Ber Cunin of Chabad Of California.
