BERLIN (JTA) -- Several hundred Jewish revelers gathered in Berlin for what was billed as the city's first-ever Jewish parade.

Marking Lag b'Omer, the "Unity Parade" for peace and tolerance made its way Sunday from the Kurfurstendam to the Chabad educational center on Muenstersche Strasse, where a street fair awaited participants. Rabbis Yehudah Teichtal and Shmuel Segal led the parade, which featured makeshift floats and a German bagpipe band.
