Join Us! Rally at NYC World Trade Center this Sunday 11 AM Against Terror and Antisemitism

A rally is set for 11 am this Sunday, May 23, at 7 World Trade Center in response to a wave of antisemitic attacks nationwide and to stand with Israel in its battles against terrorists.

The Ground Zero rally, “United Against Antisemitism. United Against Terror. United for Us” will take place at the corner of Barclay and Greenwich streets, led by the Israeli-American Council (IAC) New York Region with 100 Tri-State Jewish community organizations. The IAC is simultaneously leading 16 other rallies from coast to coast expected to bring many thousands of people, as antisemitic hate crimes are rising nationwide amid the current wave of Mideast violence.

“A cease-fire does not put an end to the unprecedented attacks against Israel in the U.S. and against our community. We must protect and defend our families both here and in Israel,” said IAC Co-founder and CEO Shoham Nicolet.

In addition to New York City, rallies are scheduled Sunday in Atlanta; Austin, TX; Denver; Great Neck, Long Island; Houston; Kansas City; Los Angeles; Teaneck, NJ; Orange County, CA; Orlando; Miami; Philadelphia; Rochester, NY; and San Francisco.

The Great Neck event will be at 3 PM Sunday, at Grace Ave. Park.

The NJ rally will be in Tenafly, at Roosevelt Commons, at 6 pm.

IAC NY’s director, Sharon Eyny, has more info about Great Neck at sharone@israeliamerican.org. Contact Sharon Goren for NJ at sgoren@israeliamerican.org.

IAC officials plan to lay blue and white flowers – showing Israel’s national colors – at the World Trade Center memorial, and to march from the site to the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in nearby Battery Park afterward, creating a powerful symbol linking the destruction of European Jewry to contemporary efforts to target Jews and other innocent victims.

The IAC chose the World Trade Center as a gathering spot because the site reflects America’s own history of being targeted by hatred.

“The World Trade Center is a powerful symbol of America’s resilience and resolve against hatred and terrorism, just as the people of Israel stand strong in the face of terrorism and hate,” said Nicolet. “We call on New Yorkers of all backgrounds to join us at Ground Zero, and show a unified front against antisemitic hatred and terror, here and in Israel.”
