Hundreds of people poured onto 16th Street on Sunday wearing paper crowns, waving flags and dancing.

Behind them drove a firetruck, an antique Oldsmobile, a DeLorean — a dozen vehicles in all. Hebrew songs blasted from a speaker and in the midst the happy scene, Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, dressed in a bright gold frock coat, danced with the Torah scroll he had finished copying minutes before. In this parade was also DC’s Different Drummers Marching Band!!
