Still Standing but Not Standing Still

26 Nov

Over 600 Sarasota-Manatee locals gathered together on Friday afternoon to show support for Israel in light of the recent situation with Gaza. Despite the ceasefire agreement last Wednesday, the Federation still felt this demonstration necessary and important.

Sarasota should be proud of such a strong show of support for our second home. However, we are still far from peace. The storm may have died down for now, but there is still much to be done. Terrorism has not subsided and Israeli citizens still face the everyday threat of rockets falling on their homes.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, in cooperation with the JCRC of Greater Washington, has created a petition thanking our President and government for their steadfast support of Israel during difficult times.Sign the petition here, then send it out to your friends and fellow supporters of Israel.

In addition, attending the Federation’s Israel@65 programs is a wonderful way to show your continued support for Israel and celebrate its rich culture and unique history. To register for events, click  here.
