So 21st Century, OU's Invitation to Today's Salute to Israel Parade

The OU's invitation to join them marching in the Salute to Israel Parade is nothing like the invitations I remember from the earliest parades, which I had marched in with NCSY.

Support Israel: March with the OU in NY on Sunday, June 2

Gather at 10:45a on Fifth Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets.

OU T-shirts, hats and sunglasses available while supplies last. We'll also supply the float, music and good company. You bring water and the sunscreen.

See you Sunday!

In those days we didn't bring water and sunscreen was pretty much an unknown.

We not only survived but we loved every last minute; at least I did.

I know this makes me sound old, but somehow the parade then had a charm and excitement that it somehow seems to lack today.

Saul, if you're old I'm old and even though 2 of my kids have passed their 40th birthday, I'm still 17...
