Wearing colorful hats decorated with Jewish exhortations to love your neighbor as yourself, an estimated 2,000 children took part in a massive Lag B’Omer rally in front of Lubavitch World Headquarters.


The rally was coordinated by Tzivos Hashem, the Chabad-Lubavitch children’s organization.


A children’s band provided music for the event.


Attendees were separated by age and gender.


A hallmark of the event was the recitation of Torah verses.


Some hats said “let’s be friends,” while others featured the biblical command to love your neighbor as yourself.
