Tens of thousands of people lined Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to show their support for Israel yesterday, JTA reports.
The “Celebrate Israel” parade was held on Sunday afternoon, under the banner of “Celebrate Israel All Together.” The parade also recognized 50 years of the reunification of Yerushalayim.
Nine members of the Knesset were scheduled to march in the parade, as was Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon and Yerushalayim Mayor Nir Barkat.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio also marched in the parade.
