(lubavitch.com) Sporting T-shirts with “This Passover, Experience Your Freedom,” 75 rabbinical students and schoolchildren packed into 13 fifteen-passenger vans last Tuesday on a parade that wove its way through downtown Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.

Stocked with Passover Matzos and informative literature, the students worked up a Passover spirit on the streets of Chicago.

Sponsored by Lubavitch Chabad of Illinois, the procession took place in advance of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe’s 108th birthday, which will be celebrated this Friday.

The convoy departed from the Regional Headquarters of Lubavitch Chabad in Illinois and slowly made its way towards downtown Chicago, catching the curiosity of pedestrian traffic and motorists.

“Our goal was to raise awareness about the coming festival [Passover] and to give everyone the chance to participate at the Seder,” rabbinical student Yaakov Feldman told lubavitch.com. The vans were posted information and invitations to Chabad’s communal Seders.

At the end of the parade, the vehicles dispersed to visit various suburbs in Chicago where they distributed 100 pounds of matzah, and Passover related literature
