The pictures of fallen IDF soldiers Lieutenant Hadar Goldin and Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul Hayad, whose bodies are being held by the Hamas terrorist organization in the Gaza Strip, were carried down the streets of Manhattan on Sunday as part of the annual Celebrate Israel Parade.

The march was attended by ministers and members of the Israeli Knesset alongside Americans who love Israel, including diplomats, rabbis and senior members of the American Jewish community.

During the march, hundreds of participants waved posters of Goldin and Shaul on which were written the Hebrbrew phrase: Kol Yisrael Arevim Zeh Lazeh, "All Israel are responsible one another."

The Goldin family said, "It is encouraging to see that in the United States they have not forgotten Oron and Hadar, when it seems sometimes that they do not remember their existence here in Israel."
