Lag Ba’omer Parade 11,000+ Feet Above Sea-Level

Not a single Jewish family lives in Cusco, Peru – which sits high in the Andes Mountains over 11,000 feet above sea-level – except for the local Chabad Shluchim, who cater to the 10,000 annual Jewish visitors who come by.

Nevertheless, not wanting their children to miss out, they held a grand Lag Ba’omer Parade through the streets of the city.

This year, two alpacas joined the parade, adding a new attraction in the annual festivity.

    Lamas?! Chas vesholom. They’re avoda zara. Llamas are a different story — treif but not avoda zara. Nevertheless, what have they got to do with this story? There are no lamas or llamas depicted. If you’d bothered to read the story (or know what a llama looks like) you’d know that.
