A group of Montreal Anash teamed up with Bochurim and together they put together the first Mitzvah Tank Parade in honor of the Rebbes 111th birthday.
Five Mitzvah Tanks paraded through the streets of Montreal in honor of Yud Alef Nissan, marking the Rebbe’s 111th birthday.
The first parade to take place this year celebrating the occasion, it was organized by Rabbi Mendy Wilansky and Hatomim Yisroel Cohen.
Members of the Jewish community in Montreal helped sponsor it in an effort to inspire as many Jews as possible to do a Mitzvah and attend a Pesach seder.
The ‘tanks’ were armed with tens of Bochurim who with Matzos, Tefillin, and Shabbos candles set out upon the city and gave them out to hundreds of unaffiliated Jews.
Saluting the parade, aside from all the people who stared in wonder, were the children from Tomchei Temim, and Beis Rivkah who came out to salute the parade and the tankistim.
A thank you was given to Chabad activist Rabbi Dovid Cohen who helped and worked on getting the necessary permits from the city of Montreal and the PDQ.
