More than 35,000 marchers and 17 bands marched Sunday with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the city’s mayoral candidates in saluting Israel and the Jewish community in New York.

Mr. Weiner, who is the only Jewish candidate running in the Democratic primary, was cheered by many marchers and onlookers, but many also booed by some who still remember the Twitter scandal. “This is a great day,” the candidate said as he marched, according to Politicker. “Before I stepped aside, I had come to this parade every single year. It’s one of [the] real joys of my schedule, so it’s great to be back.”
