Today, thousands of people from all over the world showed their support of Israel by marching through the streets of Jerusalem. These people were participants in the annual Jerusalem March that takes place during Sukkot – and this year many Israelis were thrilled to see so much support and love of the Jewish state!
Thousands marched through the largely closed center of Jerusalem as part of the annual Jerusalem March, traditionally held during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
Groups carried flags from dozens of countries, including the United States, Brazil and Thailand, with many visiting as part of Christian delegations.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said thousands of people attended, without giving a specific number, while 3,500 police officers were deployed across Jerusalem to protect the march and other key sites during the week-long Sukkot festival.
Shlomo Milevsky, an Orthodox Jew watching the march, said it was good to see support for Israel.
