This year, the Celebrate Israel parade marked its 50th anniversary. It started on Riverside Drive in 1965, when thousands of parade goers walked in support of a young Israeli nation. But for attendees like Stephen Levine of Queens, this year’s parade had special urgency.

“With all the extra attacks on Israel, verbally and otherwise,” he said, “and the antisemitism that’s rearing up again, overtly in Europe and other places, and the physical attacks on Jews in France and other places around the world, I thought this year’s especially important for me to come out here and show my support for Israel.”
