Marching with World Jewry – All Together Now – Hanukkah Parade

Marching with World Jewry – All Together Now – Hanukkah Parade

On Monday Kislev 25, 5779 — December 3, 2018 — the second night of Chanukah, we will march together and spread the light.

As part of strengthening the relationship between the State of Israel and the Jewish People in the Diaspora, Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, together with dozens of Jewish and Zionist organizations, will inaugurate a new tradition – a March of Solidarity with Diaspora Jewry.

About 5,000 marchers from varied backgrounds will join the parade, including: soldiers, university students, high school students and youth movement members; members of organizations working in cooperation with the Diaspora Jewry, members of Knesset, Israeli government ministers and honored guests from Israel and abroad.

The parade begins at 2:00 pm at Liberty Bell Park, and the march will continue along the city streets towards the Sultan’s Pool, where the closing event a special concert will take place at approx. 5:30PM. (Parade times may change and we will update this post)

The parade will include marching bands, huge floats that will feature displays from the Jewish world, enormous displays, and gala performances by Netchi Netch and Matisyahu. The parade will be in the “Spirit of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.”

The parade will be one of the largest and most impressive events ever held in Israel’s capital and will showcase a uniquely inspiring Chanukah candle-lighting ceremony.

Come be part of a new tradition. Share in something bigger.
Come and march, spread the light and be illuminated.
All Together Now!
