Pittsburgher Rebbe In L.A.

With bows and arrows, and around a bonfire, parents and children joined the Pittsburgher Rebbe on Lag B’Omer in joyously singing “Bar Yochai,” “V’amartem” and “Amar Rabbi Akiva.” Rabbis, teachers and members of the Los Angeles Jewish community – with their spouses – joined the celebration.

Like most chassidic rebbes, the Pittsburgher Rebbe conducted a tisch following the dancing to mark the day. Tisch attendees received shirayim and berachos, heard a d’var Torah and, as is the custom, observed the upsherin of three-year-old children. The rebbe cut the first lock of hair.

The Pittsburgher Rebbe plans to return to L.A. for next year’s Lag B’Omer celebration.
