Multiple student delegations joined tens of thousands of New Yorkers on Sunday as they marched down Fifth Avenue in Manhattan for the Celebrate Israel Parade, sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (JCRC-NY).

About a dozen college campuses, including Brown University, Queens College, New York University, Columbia University, Yeshiva University and Cornell University, were represented by student delegations in the parade, which has been an annual fixture for the past 48 years.

“It’s really inspiring to see such a huge amount of people come out, despite long waits and a bit of rain, to show their support of Israel,” said Aliza Ben-Arie, who is president of New York University’s Israel club. “It’s a side of the Jewish world I don’t see as often as I’d like to, and it’s empowering to see it happen.

Eli Shaubi, the incoming co-president of the Cornell Israel Public Affairs Committee, remarked, “It is really meaningful for me to be able to come out here and enjoy a fun afternoon with such a large variety of people. It’s important to remember that there is a wider pro-Israel community out there supporting you, and that we are one cog in the wheel, doing our part in advocating for Israel.”

The spokesman of the Israeli Consulate in New York, Shahar Azani, said after the parade, “Israel welcomes the participation of all community members in the Celebrate Israel Parade, and especially campus activists for Israel, as they witness the level of support Israel enjoys in the general public and are able to engage and network with other supporters of Israel. We hope to see many more every year.”

In past years, students turned to the people they knew for advice or strived to build creative plans on their own. While these approaches can yield strong results, imagine what could be achieved with a nationally networked resource that provides the best of all worlds — tested, proven programming ideas and step-by-step details of best practices for impacting the campus environment.

Dov Lerner, former ZOA president at the University of Maryland and current Lone Soldier in the IDF: “It is very different making the case for Israel on campuses than actually sitting on the border with a gun guarding the country,” Lerner said. “Having done both, I know that they are both extremely necessary.”
