   Israel Solidarity Rally Recap

An impassioned crowd of 800+ members of the Greater MetroWest Jewish community joined together as one for the Israel Solidarity Rally held Monday morning on the Aidekman campus in Whippany. In the standing room-only conference center, Israel Consul General Ido Aharoni, Cong. Leonard Lance, Sen. Robert Menendez, NJ Senator Tom Kean Jr., and Rev. Terry Richardson spoke with tremendous fervor about Israel’s right to defend herself and live in peace and security, their remarks often drowned out by applause.

See excerpts, photos, and a brief video from an extraordinary morning of unity and support for Israel. Thank you to all of our co-sponsors and everyone who came out to stand together with Israel. » read more
