6 Reasons to March with NCSY at the 50th Annual Celebrate Israel Parade!

Love Israel? Love NCSY? Bridge the two together and march in the annual Celebrate Israel Parade with the NCSY community on Sunday, June 1, 2014.

1. Get the old gang back together

1970: Advisors drive up for an NCSY Shabbaton on erev Shabbos.

Let’s face it, it’s been some time since you all got back together. It may have even been a whole week. Or perhaps a splendid two decades. It’s time to walk down Fifth Avenue and reminisce about the old days. Or yesterday, either or.


2. NCSY Apparel


All the cool kids will be wearing them.

Like American Apparel™, but more exclusive. But seriously, we’ll be giving limited edition T-shirts to those who join us.


3. Post-Pesach Cardio

OU members prepare for their annual workout.

We abstained from eating bread for eight days, faithfully consuming potatoes instead. Now time to walk off that Jewish guilt! And what better way than with your favorite youth arm of the OU! (check out our learn-a-thon for help with next month’s cheesecake-induced shame)


4. Bragging Rights

This could be you. With some embellishment of course, any good NCSY story is 40% made up.

You’ve been telling the same stories over again and again – you know you need new content. March with NCSY for the next new adventure story to tell at your Shabbos table all summer!


5. Concrete Jungle Gym


1950’s: NCSY’s Lakewood chapter performs its annual parkour exhibition at the parade.

You heard us. Parkour, people! As much as a mile of spacious wonder beckoning you to try all your moves. This is the year to show you still got it.


6. Support Israel

Stand w Israel

You could sport one of these bad-boys, and show your support!

The parade is the perfect venue to show your support for the State of Israel through the purchase of food manufactured there after you’re ready to pass out once you make it to the end. That was the idea, right?
