New York, NY – New York’s 50th Israel Day Parade up Fifth Avenue featured 35,000 boisterous marchers, but was punctuated by some Jewish spectators protesting same-sex marriage and even the existence of Israel.
The annual parade on Sunday honoring Israel also included a model of an Israel spacecraft.
Joining the feast of floats, music and dancing were New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Israeli diplomats and members of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.
