What is this ‘communal bonfire’?
Did the Rebbe ever make such a bonfire?
Why are people adopting new customs that are historically not minhag Chabad Lubavitch?

In many chabad neighborhoods (Kfar Chabad etc…) they hold massive communal bon fires. Kids look forward to it for weeks, helping in collecting wood and building it.
Now to call it a custom is a bit strong, but Klal Yisroel DOES in fact do it, so who are you to call into question a beautiful event that brings the community out and together?

Did the Nesiim of Chabad do it?
Is the new minhag Chabad to copy Poylishe Chasidim? Is Chabad now imitating Chagas?
Oy, the Rebbe’s absence is felt.
