An estimated ten-thousand people gathered Monday evening for a ‘United For Israel’ rally calling for the return of the more than 200 hostages being held by Hamas. Those in attendance also mourned the loss of the 1,400 lives taken on October 7.
The event marked 30 days since Hamas’ terror attack on Israel.
The crowd lined Central Park West from 82nd to 86th streets, and speakers included Senator Chuck Schumer, Congressman Daniel Goldman and actress Debra Messing.
The rally was organized by the UJA Federation of New York and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York. It was also co-sponsored by a number of additional Jewish groups.
