A sea of demonstrators expected to number in the hundreds of thousands will converge on the National Mall on Tuesday for the “March for Israel.” Organized by the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the event aims to condemn the surge in antisemitism and demand the release of Israeli hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

Eric Fingerhut, President and CEO of the Jewish Federations of North America, emphasized the importance of standing against terror: “Israel’s fight against Hamas is no different than America’s fight against Al Qaeda and ISIS.”

Pastor John Hagee, Founder and National Chairman of Christians United For Israel, will be on hand and is encouraging other Christians to support Israel during this time of rising antisemitism.

The rally, confined to the National Mall and with enhanced security measures, anticipates a turnout of 100,000 attendees. DC Mayor Muriel E. Bowser announced National Guard support for traffic safety points.

Organizers emphasize the peaceful nature of the march, aiming to demonstrate America’s support for Israel’s actions against Hamas. The event will also express gratitude for the recent $14 billion emergency military assistance approved by the Biden administration.

The rally’s primary focus is denouncing antisemitic rhetoric and urging Hamas to release Israeli hostages. William Daroff, CEO of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, stated, “Hamas’ brutal acts of terror have no place in a civilized world.”

As America unites in solidarity, the “March for Israel” seeks to send a resounding message: a rejection of anti-Israel sentiment and a commitment to shared values of peace, justice and freedom.
