With simcha, Lubavitch on the Palisades and Yachad joined together for a wonderful and meaningful Lag B’Omer unity parade, carnival and bonfire. The assembled group was also comprised of students in the LPS Sunday Hebrew school, elementary school and nursery school; and all associated family members, including parents, grandparents and babies in strollers. They paraded, sang along to the music and even said a perek of Tehillim while walking a route carefully protected by the Tenafly Police Department. The parade’s participants were then given money for tzedakah, which everyone joyfully placed in a massive pushka. The parade ended with a carnival in full swing in the LPS parking lot, with bounce houses, face painting, food, drinks, a Mother’s Day art project station and Yachad Gifts for purchase. Yachad Gifts is a unique gift basket business that employees individuals with special needs. NJ Yachad was also selling beautiful handmade jewelry, designed and created by Shani Paley of Paramus, NJ. Yachad has been working with this talented young woman in helping her launch her jewelry business.
