Tens of thousands march in New York to celebrate Israel

Tens of thousands of Israel supporters gathered in Manhattan on Sunday (June 2) for the 55th annual Celebrate Israel Parade - the largest celebration of Israel in the world.

Around 40,000 participants took part in this year’s event, from organizations including Birthright Israel, UJA-Federation of New York, El Al, Maimonides Medial Center and many Jewish youth movements and schools.

Thirty of the participating organizations designed a float with colorful banners and costumes.

Six volunteers were appointed Grand Marshals of the parade.

A group of about two dozen protesters met the parade on East 59th Street and 5th avenue to protest the celebration of Israel.

Later joined by protesters with Palestinian flags.
