This year I said I would not take a lot of pictures. I would not, I would not, I would not. I came home and emptied a mere 126 images unto my external hard drive. This post features schools from New Jersey that marched in the Salute to Israel Parade down 5th Avenue in New York City in May 2010.
Next year my daughter will be old enough to march with her school. Her school, RPRY in Edison, always features dancers as a highlight.
It’s a lot of fun when you know the person holding the banner, and he enthusiastically smiles at you. This is my eldest son’s school, Torah Academy of Bergen County.
We recognized several of the students of Kushner Hebrew Academy and Kushner Yeshiva High School of Livingston, New Jersey.
Yavneh Academy had a sunny theme.
I liked the bright kites. Related to the sunny theme.
Here is Solomon Schecter Day School of Raritan Valley.
JEC of Elizabeth, New Jersey had a lively, colorful banner.
I captured the banner for the Frisch School of Paramus, New Jersey just as we were leaving the parade. We didn’t stay for the whole time – as it is, we didn’t get back home until 5 pm.
No idea what organization held this banner that reads “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.”

Great to see so many young, and not so young, folks marching for Israel. Choosing NJ as a theme for this post was a shrewd idea.
I had to limit it somehow! And truthfully, those schools were more interesting to us since we know students.
A few rows over and you would have gotten me, my daughter and her friend in your picture of JEC. Wasn’t it a great parade?
I had a good time! For once, we got there early and got a good spot to watch. Next year, I might march with my daughter, since she will be old enough to march with her school.
Boy-oh-boy does that bring back memories! Nice to see the happy faces and the good weather! (I marched in 1966 it was rainy.)
How fun, I used to go every year with USY. What great memories :).
a mere 126 images
Looks like you had fun, and I’m glad to see that the weather cooperated!
It’s me again. Batya got me into another meme. A nice one this time. I’ve given you a Versatile Blogger Award. Here: http://isramom.blogspot.com/2010/05/blogsphere-thank-yous.html
«Louis» wishes he could have been there to witness (if not participate in) this parade!
Israel is under assault from many directions and in many ways. We need to stand firm for Israel!
Wow…amazing captures of fun, laughter and festivity.
Great photos! We wanted to go also but thought it might be too overwhelming with the little guy.
that is amazing! i used to live in nj a long, long time ago. but i can honestly say i’ve never seen anything like this before! thanks so much for sharing these photos– what a wonderful memory to get a glimpse of!
