The annual Celebrate Israel Parade took place Sunday on Fifth Avenue in New York City, with organizers saying that tens of thousands of people took part.

Floats proceeded down the major Manhattan thoroughfare along with marching delegations from Israeli, Israel advocacy, and American Jewish groups.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon led the diplomatic delegation of U.N. ambassadors and diplomats from around the world who participated in the event, according to his office.
Among the participants were ambassadors from Australia, Germany, Ukraine, Norway, and other countries.

“In the face of the growing wave of anti-Semitism, we are demonstrating strength and unity today,” said Ambassador Danon, “despite the differences of opinion, the connection with the Jewish people in Israel is at the heart of the relationship between American Jewry and Israel.”

The German ambassador to the United Nations said that it was “wonderful to celebrate Israel…to have the city full of blue and white flags, to have so many of the international community demonstrate their support for Israel.”

Previously known as the Salute to Israel Parade, this was the 55th time it had taken place since 1965. The event has been run by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of New York since 2011.

This year’s parade was attended by the mayor of New York City, the governor of New York State, and elected American officials, in addition to Jewish and pro-Israel organizations and institutions, schools, students, and others, say the organizers.

以色列一年一度的庆祝游行星期天在纽约第五大道举行,组织者说有数万人参加了游行。

彩车沿着曼哈顿的主要大道行驶,同时还有来自以色列、以色列拥护者和美国犹太人团体的游行代表团。

以色列驻联合国大使丹尼·丹农的办公室称,他率领联合国驻联合国大使和来自世界各地的外交官组成的外交代表团参加了这次活动。

与会者中有来自澳大利亚、德国、乌克兰、挪威和其他国家的大使。

“面对日益高涨的反犹太主义浪潮,我们今天展示了力量和团结,”丹农大使说,“尽管意见分歧,但与以色列犹太人的联系是美国犹太人和以色列关系的核心。”

德国驻联合国大使说,“很高兴庆祝以色列……让这座城市充满蓝白色旗帜,让这么多国际社会展示他们对以色列的支持。”

这是以色列自1965年以来第55次举行“向以色列致敬”游行。该活动自2011年以来由纽约的犹太社区关系委员会(JCRC)主办。

组织者说,今年的游行是由纽约市市长、纽约州州长和当选的美国官员参加的,除了犹太人和亲以色列的组织和机构、学校、学生和其他人。
