The Empire State Building in New York City will shine blue and white on June 5 – mirroring the colors of the Israeli flag – for the annual Celebrate Israel Parade and festival in New York City.
“We are thrilled that this year, in addition to the parade, we are presenting many opportunities for Jewish New Yorkers to celebrate and demonstrate our collective support for Israel,” said Eric S. Goldstein, CEO of the UJA-Federation of New York, which is hosting the annual parade alongside the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York and the Consulate General of Israel in New York.
The parade calls itself “the largest demonstration of support for Israel in the world.”
On June 5, more than 250 organizations will march from 57th Street to 74th Street along Fifth Avenue in New York, with TV host Kathie Lee Gifford leading the parade as honorary grand marshal.
