Join the fabulous Avalon String Band, the Philadelphia Police and Fire Pipes and Drums, the Star of David Bikers, Shofar blowers, drummers and dozens of other community organizations and individuals who will parade on floats and on foot on Sunday, May 19, to celebrate Israel’s 65th year of independence.
You can express your love for our Jewish homeland by creating a float, performing in a musical or dance troupe or simply strutting your stuff through Center City to the Pennsylvania Convention Center — the site of our amazing indoor Israel 65 festival. Parade organizers are looking for 65 skilled shofar blowers of all ages to commemorate Israel’s milestone anniversary.
CBS 3 News anchor and reporter Pat Ciarrocchi will be our Israel65 Master of Ceremonies. The parade will line up along Eakins Oval at 10:30 a.m. and arrive at the convention center by noon.
Don’t let this parade pass you by. Sign up NOW at: jewishphilly.org/Israel65 or call our hotline at 215-832-0564. Hurry, registration closes by Wednesday, April 10.
