Salute to Israel Day Parade


Israel-Parade-4

 

As in past years, thousands of people from all over the country descended on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to cheer on the dozens of floats and marchers in the annual Salute to Israel Day Parade. Also, as in past years, many local politicians came to publicly express their support for Israel, along with tens of thousands of other supporters.

One difference: This year saw Yuri Foreman, a well-known Russian Jewish boxer and rabbinical student, marching through the parade, coming off another strong boxing victory.

 

Despite some weather concerns from earlier reports, it turned out to be beautiful once the sun came out – which did not take too long. Children lined up for blocks trying to get a peek at the most colorful and extraordinary floats. “We come out every year to show our support for Israel and admire the floats,” said Sara Greenwald from Brooklyn. “The kids love it and look forward to it each year.”

“At a time when Israel requires our support as much as ever, this unbelievable crowd is definitely a positive boost,” a man with a fisherman hat was overheard saying.
