Hundreds of children took part in a children's parade held by the Chabad movement in Tel Aviv Sunday.

According to one of the Chabad activists, the late Lubavicher Rebbe decided that the holiday of Lag BaOmer should be a day in which children’s parades should be held. The Rebbe said that the slogan for the day should be “all the children of Israel come together” and that the spirit should be that of the commandment “love your fellow man as you love yourself.”
