March for Israel in Washington D.C.More than 290,000 ardent supporters from across the country — including 1,100 from Miami — rallied at the March for Israel on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. at the largest pro-Israel gathering in US history. “Be There, Be Heard,” proclaimed March organizers the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, who initiated the event as “an opportunity for all Americans to come together in solidarity with the people of Israel to demonstrate our commitment to America’s most important ally” in the region. The record-breaking turnout was supplemented by 250,000 livestream viewers. For almost three and a half hours, a sea of Jews and allies flooded the breadth of the National Mall with impassioned words and songs. The focus was combatting antisemitism, eradicating global terrorism, supporting those fighting and those impacted by the war in Israel and demanding that Hamas immediately and unconditionally release all 240 hostages held in Gaza.
