11 marched in the parade
carrying the posters that
they created and singing the
songs that they had learned
especially fOr the parade. At
the end of the march, the
participants arrived at Oak
Park Municipal Park for a

interesting experience.

Hebrew Students
Missed Parade

Editor, The Jewish News:
On Sunday, May 20, 1973 a
beautiful thing happened in
Oak Park. It was the setting
of a parade honoring Israel's
25th anniversary. It was a
wonderful experience for the
children and parents attend-
ing. But unfortunately, not all
children could attend. Appar-
ently, the majority of He-
brew and Sunday schools did
not find this an important-
enough occasion to dismiss
school for the day.
Learning does not only take
place in a classroom. It could
have taken place in the park,
seeing the parade, hearing
the speeches and seeing the
Jewish state and people being
so honored.
I'm very glad one of my
children marched and the
other, being too young, could
When will these children
have an occasion again to see
our people so honored —
another 25 years?
