Photos of over 300 Northeast Marchers at the Salute to Israel Parade
Sunday June 5, 2006

            Northeast Queens Vice Presidents Corinne Steel and Ethel Levine led a group of 300 marchers from 9 northeast Queens schuls at the Salute to Israel Parade.  A highlight included the participation of Jesse Perlstein, 101 years young, from Marathon Jewish Center and a long-time volunteer at the Samuel Field Y, who led our delegation.   Janna Babad,  the 11 year-old who accompanied Jesse, in the car, helped symbolize the time line of 90 years between them as reflected in the special banners our congregations carried (in addition to synagogue banners).  Joseph Levine provides the photographs that follow.
