On the morning of Saturday, October 7, teams of Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israel and thousands of missiles were fired. As the situation worsens, we will come together with our community for a peaceful demonstration in support of Israel.

This event is being held to show support for the victims in Israel and to condemn the atrocities. This is not a political event.  

We are in contact with the Philadelphia Police Department and Philadelphia Park Rangers. Both the Philadelphia Police Department and Philadelphia Park Rangers will be present and providing security at the event.
