Encouraging people who stand with Israel to be a voice for those who can’t be heard, the Americans March for Israel is being organized by Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference for Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Locally, United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Jewish Community Relations Council is spearheading the effort to get people to DC. This pro-Israel rally and solidarity effort enforces support for Israel, while sending a unified message to free the hostages and combat antisemitism.

According to Eric Fingerhut, JFNA CEO, the rally aims to show pride for what the U.S. government has already done to support Israel, as well as to emphasize the ongoing effort that will be required for the length of this conflict.

Join members of the Tidewater community and friends from around the country to support Israel and stand together at this challenging moment. Go to to register.

Seats are limited. $72 per person helps defray the cost of transportation to and from D.C., snacks, and water. The current plan is to leave Tidewater promptly at 7:30 am and return by 10:30 pm. Departure time and location and other details will be shared upon registration.
