New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Sunday marched in the Celebrate Israel Parade in Manhattan.

“Grateful to march with New York’s Jewish community at the Celebrate Israel parade!” tweeted Hochul.

“New York is home to the largest Jewish population outside of Israel, and I’m proud to once again celebrate our special bond,” she added.

The parade, organized by the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, set out from the intersection of 54th Street and 5th Avenue.

More than 40,000 people, including representatives from over 200 different groups, joined the parade.

This past December, Hochul launched the state’s Hate and Bias Prevention Unit. The new agency will work to combat the increase in antisemitic and other hate crimes.

The Hate and Bias Prevention Unit will oversee public education and outreach to the public, and will also become an early warning system for hate crimes in local communities, according to the report. The unit will be tasked with sending agents to the scenes of hate incidents.
