When terrorist attacks escalated in Israel in May 2021, Jewish Clevelanders came together to show their unwavering support for the Israeli people and the Jewish homeland at a rally hosted by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Israeli-American Council. On May 12, more than 500 people from our diverse Jewish community marched down Richmond Road to send a message of peace and healing across the world. Rally participants also heard inspirational messages from community leadership and clergy.

“We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Israel, and we show support to our Cleveland community that is in pain right now as we hear the stories about what’s happening in Israel,” J. David Heller, Federation board chair, told the audience. “Being together at this time is so important.”
