“We need to be there for Israel—for our brothers and sisters who are under brutal attack by terror organizations,” said Shoham Nicolet, co-founder and CEO of the Israeli-American Council, which is one of several Jewish and pro-Israel organizations hosting rallies.

Among the cities are:

  • New York at Times Square, 5:30 pm
  • Boston at Copley Square, 5 pm
  • Los Angeles at the West Federal Building, 3 pm
  • Philadelphia at the “Rocky” stairs at the Art Museum, 4:30 pm
  • Washington D.C. at the Israel Embassy, 5:30 pm
  • Denver at Civic Park, 5 pm
  • Las Vegas at the Venetian, 6 pm

Rallies are also planned for Seattle; Cleveland; Austin; Houston; Orlando, Fla.; the cities of Walnut Creek and Irvine in California; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and more. All times are local.
