OC Stands United With Israel At Rally

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

More than 2,000 members of Orange County’s Jewish community and friends of other faiths gathered on Tuesday on the Samueli Jewish Campus to rally for Israel and say no to terror.  Representing every Jewish community organization and congregation, we sent a clear and powerful message that Orange County stands united with the people and government of Israel and with the IDF in this time of crisis.
