More than 200 families and friends of Stamford’s Bi-Cultural Day School (BCDS), wearing bright red “I Love Jerusalem” T-shirts, set out for New York City early Sunday morning, June 4, to join thousands of others as they sang and danced their way up Fifth Avenue as part of the annual Celebrate Israel Parade.
“It was exhilarating to be a part of the largest and most outspoken demonstration of support for Israel in the world,” said BCDS Head of School Jackie Herman.
With so many national and international media on hand, Herman said, “We were proud to send an unequivocal message of Jewish unity to the world—a message that says the American Jewish community stands with Israel, now and forever. Our impressive delegation of students, families and teachers brought to life the words we proclaim every day: Bi-Cultural Stands With Israel! Am Yisrael Chai!”
