Grunsteins Sponsor Hevron Float

This Sunday, nearly a million Israel sup­porters turned out on 5th Avenue for the 50th annual Celebrate Israel parade. Of the dozens of floats in the parade, one commemorat­ed the Hebron Fund, an organization paying tribute to the Jewish community in Hebron. The town is home to the second holiest site in Judaism, the Cave of the Patriarchs and Matri­archs. Nearly 1,000 Jews live in the town and protect the site, which receives more than 700,000 visitors annually.

The Hebron Fund provides support to this community, including funding for all parks, playgrounds, recreation centers, after-school programs, libraries, and summer youth activ­ities. The group also sponsors public cultural and educational events in Hebron.

Their float at the Celebrate Israel parade included a replica of the famous Hebron Cave and background on the Fund to en­courage tourism and support to the Hebron community. Leonard and Chanie Grunstein, who have long been involved with the He­bron Fund, provided generous sponsorship in memory of Leonard’s father, Morris Grun­stein of blessed memory.
