The Chinese delegation in the annual Jerusalem Parade, September 24, 2013, during the holiday of Sukkot. The parade attracts thousands of visitors and participants from all over the country and from overseas.

The parade offered three separate tracks, depending on your motivation:

Track C, Family route –5 km, 8 – 10 AM. From the Governor’s Palace – The Governor’s Palace Promenade – Peace Forest – Abu Tor – Beka – The Railway Complex – Yemin Moshe – Mishkanot Shaananim – Rehavya Valley – Sachar Park.

In other words, everybody ended up at Sachar Park. The parade was judged—how can you be in Jerusalem and expect not to be judged?—and judging was executed in sections defined in advance, based on uniformity, originality, spirit, clothing, accessories and ornament.

That’s the way I evaluate my own family, by the way…

Have a splendid last day of Sukkot, a deeply felt Hoshana Rabba and a fun Shmini Atzeret/Simchat Torah.

  1. If i was there i woulbe able to raise the Rwandan Frag in the right hand the Star of David in the left one

  2. I think events like these are important to show that Israel does have supporters and allies. There is a segment of the world populations that recognizes that Israel is demonized and slandered and that much of this criticism stems from anti Semitism. It also shows that Israel does not have to be held hostage by an anti Israel president, Israel does have other options. I can only hope that the current regime recognizes this fact and steers away from its headlong race to destruction

  3. Oh Santo Di-s!!! como no me entere antes? para Yo tambien estar alli…(si se de la festividad pero no que habia todas estas manifestaciones de apoyo a Israel) SE que un dia estare alli… gracias Padre Celestial, porque se que me llevaras a Isarel, en el nombre de Jesucristo….Amen, Amen….Shalom!!!!!!!!!!
