The New Face of New York's Israel Day Parade

While the Salute to Israel parade is still very energetic, it is marching on borrowed time. New York’s leading Jewish intelligentsia - the new Brooklyn bohemia and Columbia students - are not here.

NEW YORK − This year too there was a parade. On Sunday, New York City’s Fifth Avenue filled with the huge commotion of the pro-Israel procession. For five consecutive hours tens of thousands of marchers flooded Manhattan’s center with Israeli songs, Mizrahi music and thousands of blue-and-white flags demonstrating sweeping support for the Jewish state.
