Over 30,000 lovers of Israel ignored the rain on Sunday to march in New York City’s Celebrate Israel Parade, the largest in the world. 

The annual Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City, the world’s largest parade in support of the Jewish state, highlights Israel’s positive impact on the lives of people across the globe.

Thousands of participants took part in the parade, including Boy/Girl Scouts of America, marching bands, numerous Jewish congregations, Jewish middle schools and high schools as well as Jewish and Christian organizations.

In honor of the Celebrate Israel Parade and the State of Israel, the Empire State Building’s world-famous tower lights shone blue and white on the previous day.

Watch and see this wonderful, heartening display of support and love for the State of Israel! (Video begins playing at 4:48).
