WATCH: OU Delivers 180,000 Letters To White House Marking 180 Days Of Hostages In Gaza

The Orthodox Union hand-delivered 180,000 letters to the White House on Wednesday, to mark the 180th day since hostages were taken by Hamas on October 7th.

The letters urged President Biden to support Israel without undermining its war effort, take meaningful steps to combat antisemitism and secure the release of Israeli and American hostages.

A press conference was held with hostage family members, leading Jewish organizations, and college students who have experienced antisemitism

Following the press conference, the letters were walked over to the White House.

Among those who spoke at the press conference were Rabbi Moshe Hauer, Rabbi Yaakov Glasser, Rabbi Dr. Josh Joseph, Rachel Goldberg, mother of hostage Hersh Goldberg Polin, Maurice Shnaider, uncle of hostage Shiri Bibas, Rabbi Shay Schachter, and others.

  1. At the risk of being yelled at and having attended rallies and sent this letter also, I really don’t understand the purpose behind it. Is the Biden/Obama administration going to ignore all their progressive demonrat supporters and all of a sudden be true supporters of the Jewish people and Eretz Yisroel? Is this meant to be some sort of action to make us feel like we’re doing something tangible? Is this really what Hashem wants from us? I think in the end it’s just more silly grandstanding by organizations. Rallies, letters to the WH, petitions are all meaningless. Wouldn’t have worked
    with Haman, won’t work with Biden!

  2. Joseph,

    Just how much sleep have you lost over the hostages? If it was your father in captivity would you mock people writing letters to the White House for his freedom?

    You never miss an opportunity to show what a heartless and insensitive golem you are.

  3. Sarah S,

    There are progressive Democratic supporters of Biden who are strongly pro-Israel. Ritchie Torres and John Fetterman come immediately to mind. Biden is still trying to get billions in aid for Israel and the Republicans are blocking it on orders from Trump. And he is also trying to sell more aircraft to Israel but Smotrich is blocking the sale.
