More than 1,500 students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Yeshiva University marched up Fifth Avenue, cheering and greeting the crowds as they celebrated Israel’s 64th year of independence at the annual 2012 Celebrate Israel Parade on Sunday, June 3.
Accompanied by the YU parade float, President Richard M. Joel led a contingent that included representatives from the University’s undergraduate schools, affiliated high schools, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary and Albert Einstein College of Medicine and their families.
