2019 Celebrate Israel Parade
On Sunday, June 2nd, over 250 members of the Birthright Israel family, including staff and alumni, came together to march down Manhattan's 5th Avenue for the 55th Annual Celebrate Israel Parade.
The parade is the largest public event celebrating Israel in the world highlighting Israel's lively culture, rich heritage, and the positive impact the Jewish state has on the lives of people around the globe. This year's parade theme was Only in Israel.
We were lucky to be joined by fashion blogger Elizabeth Savetsky, who served as the parade's Honorary Grand Marshal. Elizabeth brought her spirit and love for Israel as she rode the float with her husband, Ira, and their two young daughters.
The best way to combat antisemitism is by showing pride. Supporting the magic of Israel is the best way to fight for it.—
