Lag B’Omer 5771 (22 May 2011): Thousands of people from all sectors of the Melbourne Jewish community lined the streets for an impressive Lag B’Omer Parade, organized by Chabad Youth. The students of the Rabbinical College of Australia & New Zealand were involved in many facets of the event.

The parade featured over fifty floats, including a “Mitzvah Amusement Park” theme float constructed by the students of the College, as well as a musical float featuring the Yeshivah Gedolah Band. Shliach Shmuel Lipskier invested many hours into training a small group of Yeshivah College students to perform as a marching band. The many energetic and exciting clowns were none other than our very own students.

Upon the parade’s completion, the festivities continued with a fair at Princes Park. Many students spent this time reaching out to their fellow Jews, and inviting men to don Tefillin.

Pictured below are several scenes of the students constructing their float, and their participation in the parade.
