Rally for Israel Monday, Oct. 9, 7 p.m.
at Congregation Beth Emeth, 100 Academy Rd, Albany
Sponsored by Jewish Federation of NENY
Beginning early Saturday, widespread terror and bombing attacks by Hamas from Gaza have killed hundreds and wounded thousands and taken unknown numbers of hostages. The days and weeks ahead will no doubt be bitter and painful.
We must show our support for Israel at the rally, which will be hosted by Hank Greenberg and Prof. Stephen Berk.
- Stay informed. Now is the time to stay engaged with the unfolding events in Israel.
- Put politics aside. There are a diversity of opinions about the actions of Israel’s government. Now is the time for solidarity.
We are advocates and leaders within the larger community. Speak to friends, neighbors and colleagues about the values that you hold dear. The Jewish people have rights to life, liberty and a Jewish homeland.
