We are living through a historic moment for the Jewish people, for the State of Israel, and for all of civilization.

Since the barbaric attack by Hamas on October 7th that took 1,200 innocent Israeli lives, and Israel’s response, anti-Israel rallies across the globe have drawn hundreds of thousands of protesters; antisemitic rhetoric and attacks against Jews on city streets, college campuses, and social media have increased a hundredfold. In the face of anti-Israel and antisemitic sentiment, on Tuesday, November 14 nearly 300,000 supporters of Israel from across America marched on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to show solidary, demand the immediate release of the hostages, and condemn antisemitism.

We have seen what Jews around the world can accomplish when we work together. Click here to learn about ways you can support Israel during this difficult time.
