On Jan. 16, the Klein JCC in Northeast Philadelphia staged an Israel Solidarity Rally.
Asaf Romirowsky, manager of Israel and Middle East Affairs for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, updated the crowd of 200 people about the current situation in the Gaza region.
Following the rally, participants signed letters to Pennsylvania state representatives and to Israeli Defense Force soldiers in the region. The letters to soldiers will be hand-delivered this week.
The current cease-fire notwithstanding, these seniors proved that action is the word of the day.
