Rabbi Yahuda Levin of Jews for Morality is speaking as he usually does, and blowing the shofar horn. When I was there a few years ago, I was extremely moved by his speech. A Brooklyn Orthodox Rabbi, he had challenging words for Sen. Chuck Schumer, a fellow New Yorker.
I think the actual marching will begin shortly after the closing prayer.

Archbishop William Keeler of Baltimore, Sean O'Malley of Boston, Joseph Namen of Kansas City, Raymond Burke of St. Louis, Henry Mansell of Hartford, Connecticut, Paul Laverdi of Arlington, VA, Michael Salsalelly of Wilmington, DE, John Smith of Trenton, NJ, Joseph Curt of Knoxville, TN, Robert Flynn of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Lenoard Blair of Toledo OH, Robert Baker of Charleston, SC, Fran Mulully of Baltimore, Joseph Sullivan of Brooklyn, Dennis Sullivan of NYC, Robert Brukado of NY, Daniel Hart, Norwich, Connecticut, Eduward Hughes of Metuchen, NJ, James Clifford Kinlen of Scranton, PA, Michael Burbich of Philadelphia, and Kevin Rhoades of Harrisburg, PA.Hmm. Two of the three COnnecticut dioceses's Catholic bishops are there, on the podium, no less. I do wonder where my bishop is?
