Israeli Americans in New York come together for Israel Solidarity Event


ISRAELI AMERICANS IN NEW YORK
With the Jewish State battling against terror in Gaza, the New York chapter of the Israeli American Council (IAC) yesterday spearheaded a community solidarity event drawing some 1,000 supporters of the Jewish State. The event, dubbed “Come Together,” took place at the 92Y, 1395 Lexington Ave.

“Come Together” was co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, UJA-Federation of New York, and the Israeliness program of the 92Y. All donations made at the event will go toward UJA-Federation of New York’s Israel Emergency Fund. Featured guests at the event included Ido Aharoni, Consul General for Israel; Michael Miller, Executive Vice President & CEO, Jewish Community Relations Council; Gil Galanos, IAC Regional Council Co-Chair, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, (D-NY.)

This New York event took place as Israeli Americans and Israel’s supporters across the United States are rallying to support Israel. The IAC is helping lead rallies and solidarity events in support of Israel in cities nationwide, and has already held major events in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Other rallies supporting Israel have been held or are set to take place in Boston, Miami, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
