On the first day of Shavuos, after an early mincha, about 2,000 bochurim and men took part in the “best ever” march to many of the shuls in the Boro Park neighborhood – five miles each way – with wonderful ruach (spirit) and singing. Police cars and cyclists escorted the walkers. One Lubavitcher addressed each congregation between mincha and maariv.

After maariv everyone walked back to Crown Heights. They did not get back until about 1:00 in the morning. Having now completed the “ten-mile march,” they gathered outside the Rebbe’s home lustily singing, dancing and covered with perspiration. After that, it was “dinner” time!
