San Francisco, CA – On Sunday, July 20, at 4:00pm, the Jewish Community Relations Council, the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund, and the Board of Rabbis of Northern California will hold an Emergency Solidary Gathering to Stop the Sirens in Israel and end the latest cycle of violence in the Middle East. As Israel continues to face incessant rocket fire from Gaza, and Hamas rejects Israel’s offers of a ceasefire, we call on our community to come together for a mass gathering to stand with the people of Israel during this difficult time. The event will feature the Israeli Consul General, elected officials, community leaders, interfaith leaders, and music. It is ecumenical and open to the public.
