Your editorial, “Israel Parade: Missing In Action” (May 28), was right on target.
I’ve noticed for a very long time that the vast majority of those who go to the Salute to Israel Parade are Modern Orthodox. This parade is not a “religious” event; it is simply a tribute to and celebration of Israel, and therefore should attract Jews from across the religious spectrum. This is true not only of this parade but of many Jewishly oriented events.
