Agudah Urges Attendance At Massive Pro-Israel Rally In Washington, D.C.


A massive pro-Israel rally is being planned for Tuesday, November 14th, in Washington, D.C., to push back against the numerous – and oftentimes violent – pro-Hamas and pro-Palestinian protests that have been popping up across the U.S. and the globe, and to urge the U.S. government to stand firm in its support of the Jewish State.

Two Jewish organizations – the Jewish Federations of North America and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations – are organizing the rally, and although Agudath Israel is not directly involved with it, the organization is promoting it and urging those who can to attend.

“In light of the ongoing life-threatening danger confronting Israeli soldiers and all of our dear brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisroel, and with great concern about the extremely volatile political climate here in the United States, we feel it is important, midarchei ha’shtadlonus, that there be a large turnout at this event,” Agudah said in a message to its supporters.

“Accordingly, and in consultation with our rabbinic leadership, we are circulating to our friends and constituents information about the rally. More information will be available here in the coming days,” the Agudah message continues.

“In the merit of our Torah and tefillah, and carrying out our shtadlanus obligations, may HKB’H hear our cries and protect us from all dangers — Hashem hoshia ha’Melech ya’aneinu b’yom koreinu!”

  1. Davening, learning and doing chesed will be much more effective. The world hates us and no amount of protests will ever change that reality.

  2. With the greatest respect to the Manhegim Hador … The K’helos should be reciting Avynu Malkaynu during the week , & on Shabbos as well as is done by the Sephardim . The Eybishter should have Rachmanus on us all .

  3. While I normally agree that rallies don’t do much I think now it’s different and a tremendous showing of achdus by jews of all “stripes” will imho make a kiddush Hashem and also show our strength .

  4. There is a bus going from the Jewish federation of Ocean County. (Who knew they existed?)

    Are there any Frum busses going from Lakewood?

    We hope that there will be, but in the event that nothing is arranged by larger organizations, we would try to work something out.

    We can be contacted at [email protected]

  5. We are Davening and doing chesed. And if that’s all you want to do then great. But don’t put down those who answer the call to action.

  6. The Agudah would never tell the yeshivaleit to leave the Bais Medrash and go to DC.
    This is definitely a big kiddush Hashem, but it’s not on the level of the “Rabbi’s March” in 1943 where there was actual Pikuach Nefesh.

  7. What type of security will be provided for and enforced for this large gathering of mainly Jews, who have become increasingly vulnerable to attack on US soil, according to the FBI and Dept. Homeland Security ?

  8. I’m glad to see the Agudah coming out with their position quickly this time, in contrast to their dithering and ultimate “we take no position” response to the last time there was a similar rally – back in 2002.

  9. UJM: Rallies don’t “acomplish” anything per se but the scale of these gatherings does motivate members of Congress in D.C. and equally important, a large turnout will be a sign of support for those in EY, jewish college students on campus and others who need to see a achdus among the various segments of the Jewish community speaking with one voice against the terrorism of October 7th

  10. all we need right now is 4 people 2 maybe act more civil like people and not animals which is exactly what hamas is known 4 and please more davening and chesed there’s nothing that can and should besides that during this time now even more than even b4 u know and in that zechus may moshiach come already now beis hamikdash rebuilt now amen

    Virtually every community sending busses is a frum community. Perhaps you meant “Yeshivish and Chasidish” communities. Not that that would make your comment much less offensive.

  12. They said clearly they are promoting it and urging those who can to attend. I live in Lakewood and Iyh will be taking the whole family. Hope others join as well.
