Community Briefing on Israel


Posted on Jul 14, 2014

Please join us for a community briefing on the situation in Israel.

Tuesday, July 15
7 PM 
Jewish Community Center of Squirrel Hill 
5738 Forbes Avenue, Levinson Hall

We will hear from Israeli government representatives, local leadership who just returned from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and a Middle East security expert with an up-to-the-minute account of what's going on in Israel.

Following a month of similar rocket attacks from Gaza, over 400 rockets have landed in Israeli territory since last week, causing extensive damage to homes and businesses and forcing four million Israeli citizens in the South and Center of the country into shelters and safe rooms. 

Hamas leadership has responded to the Israeli operation with an escalation of rhetoric and calls for revenge.

Please join us to learn more and offer Israel support during its time of greatest need.
