The Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania joined the thousands of supporters of the State of Israel walking, singing and dancing down New York City’s Fifth Avenue in the annual Celebrate Israel Parade. Participants from Scranton and the Poconos, truly representing the whole of the Federation family, enjoyed the excitement and unity in the air.
The sunny skies and warm temperatures added to the lighthearted atmosphere as we celebrated the parade theme “Rak b’Yisrael” (only in Israel)!
As always, our trip included a stop in Teaneck, N.J. where participants enjoyed shopping and dining in the numerous Kosher establishments available there.
Many thanks to Mark Silverberg, executive director of the Federation, for sponsoring the comfortable charter bus.
