Pro-Israel Manhattan Rally on January 6!

The achdus demonstrated at this rally should be a zechus for Chanoch Shmuel HaKohen ben Shoshana Zipora, the chayal for whom I am praying/ learning, and for all the rest of our brave soldiers.


Hundreds of people, perhaps even thousands, congregated at 2nd and 42nd today to demonstrate their unequivocal support for the State of Israel. Joined by members of the band Blue Fringe, who performed live, singing their songs "City of Gold" and one where the refrain was Lo Le'fached, various dignitaries and officials, and passionate speakers, we all stood outside in the freezing cold and supported our country. The rally concluded with the song "Od Yavo Shalom" by Blue Fringe, which you can see below:

After the rally, Chabad members (who are amazing!) took people aside and inquired as to whether they would be interested in putting on tefillin.

Here's a snippet of what was said by one of the speakers:
