Put yourself in the picture, and encourage friends and family
to help us organize, prepare, and march the Parade. 

Why we March... We are 7 diverse synagogues from Long
Island’s South Shore, united to support Israel and the Jewish people.
This year we honor 67 years of world-leading Israeli achievements,
and celebrate how "Israel Imagines."
By marching united, we  proudly proclaim Israel’s universal 
message to humanity:


"Worthy goals, plus shared effort, elevate the spirit, inspire
the mind, and establish a future filled with possibility."

"I marched for my first time last year, with my son as part of his school requirement.
It was a day filled with ruach, excitement and just plain fun. You walk with fellow Jews
in camaraderie, from all over. It is something I will never forget and will make a
special effort to come back long after graduation." -- Jamey Kohn
