Jun 5, 2006 — Hundreds of YU students, faculty, alumni and friends enthusiastically marched up Fifth Avenue in the annual Salute to Israel Parade. President Richard M. Joel led the YU contingent that accompanied a parade float and live music was provided by Blue Fringe.
Students from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, sporting scrubs, had a large representation. On the float, students responded to cheers from the crowd and handed out specially designed YU T-shirts.
YU’s participation, estimated at 500, included the university’s undergraduate and graduate schools, affiliated high schools, as well as senior administration.
