Stand With Israel: A Community Solidarity Gathering set for 6 p.m., Tuesday

The Dayton area’s Jewish community will come together at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 10 for Stand With Israel: A Community Solidarity Gathering at the Boonshoft Center for Jewish Culture and Education. The Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton and local rabbis are organizing the program in the wake of the Hamas terror organization’s surprise attacks on Saturday which have left 800 Israelis dead, 2,200 wounded, and more than 100 captive in Gaza.

“We stand as a united community to show our support for the people of Israel, to mourn the victims, and pray for those who have been injured or taken captive,” said Cathy Gardner, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton. “We come together to support Jews in Israel, in America, and around the world as we show our strength and pursue hope, peace, and healing.”

The Boonshoft CJCE is located at 525 Versailles Dr., Centerville. No purses, bags, or backpacks will be permitted in the building.

For those unable to attend Stand With Israel: A Community Solidarity Gathering, a livestream will be available, with registration required.

Jewish Federations have opened a fund to support Israel. Donations will support victims of terror, help rebuild damaged infrastructure, and address the unprecedented levels of trauma caused by Hamas’ brutal attacks. To donate, click here.
