About The

Great Parade

Our sages stressed the significance of uniting as one people on Lag B’Omer. Whenever this holiday occurs on a Sunday, NCFJE invites Jewish people from around the country to star in the greatest Jewish parade of its kind — anywhere.

What makes The Great Parade truly, incomparably great?

The full-day celebration—parade and fair—is themed on Jewish unity and pride, leaving each participant uplifted and feeling proud of who they are. The Great Parade is based on the legacy of Mesibos Shabbos and Lag B’Omer parades held on Eastern Parkway since the 1940s.

As the Jewish population in America spreads out, let us celebrate the life and learning of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, Rabbi Akiva and the great Jewish men and women who brought new joy and unity to Am Yisroel!
