While the coalition falters in Jerusalem, several ministers are taking part in the annual Celebrate Israel parade in New York City, which returns this year after a two-year COVID break.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Immigration and Absorption Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata, and Diaspora Minister Nachman Shai are all spotted taking part in the festivities down the famed Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

Labor MK Gilad Kariv, Yesh Atid’s Inbar Bezek, and Likud’s Ofir Akunis are also marching in the parade.
