Solidarity at rallies and support for Israel during wartime often involve public demonstrations of backing for the nation and its actions. This can serve multiple purposes.

Public displays of solidarity can strengthen the sense of unity among our community and Jewish communities around the world because of our shared common beliefs, values, and affiliations. It sends a message of cohesion and collective strength. It gives us the opportunity to feel morally aligned with the cause and the belief that supporting Israel is strategically important for various reasons, such as geopolitical stability, historical ties, and shared democratic values.


My dear friends rallies like those we previously had and the one coming up this Monday in Ottawa provide a platform to raise awareness about the situation we are facing, influencing public opinion and garnering support for the immediate release of our precious hostages and eradicating terrorism once and for all so we may leave a better and safer world for our children.

Rallies also have great diplomatic significance. Garnering International support can have deep diplomatic implications and influence how nations interact on the global stage. Public expressions of support can be noticed by leaders and governments and that is what we will do on Parliament Hill on Monday.

It's important to note that perspectives on this issue can be highly diverse. While some see such displays as crucial for expressing solidarity, others may critique them, emphasizing the complexity of geopolitical conflicts and the need for nuanced understanding. Public reactions to international events often reflect a spectrum of opinions shaped by individual experiences, cultural backgrounds, and political beliefs. But we have one land and one people, and we must do everything in our power to keep it - l’Dor Vador – from generation to generation!

See you on the Hill!
