NEW YORK — The Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City is underway.
The march is a major event for the city’s Jewish community and a high-profile display of solidarity with the Jewish state often attended by local politicians.
Several Israeli ministers and lawmakers are participating, including Religious Zionism’s Simcha Rothman, who is leading the government’s judicial overhaul push.
Rothman is expected to face significant protests by opponents of the government’s plans.
