Rally held in Longmeadow to show support for Israel and Jewish community

LONGMEADOW, MA (WGGB/WSHM) – The Israel-Hamas ceasefire was extended into a seventh day and more hostages were released. As the war continues, so does advocacy in the United States.

On Thursday, members of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts and others gathered in Longmeadow. Several rallies were held in recent weeks as the Israel-Hamas war continues, with the ceasefire extended and more hostages released.

“These rallies have been a grassroots effort of community members coming out and being visible, so our Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts is proud to be supportive of the efforts of our community members and provide some different materials and support for that,” said Nora Gorenstein, CEO of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts.
