Community-wide rally for Israel Sunday

“The Status of Israel and the Peace Process in Light of the Palestinian UN Initiative,” a community-wide meeting to support Israel, will take place Sunday, Sept 25, 4:30-6 p.m., at Temple Emanuel.

Information on developments at the UN, where the PA is seeking endorsement for a unilateral declaration of statehood from the UN Security Council and-or the UN General Assembly, will be distributed.

The event is presented by the Rocky Mountain Rabbinical Council, Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado, ADL, AJC, Jewish Community Resource Center, StandWithUs, community shlicha Michal Peleg-Uziyahu and others.

Speakers will all address pertinent issues and arm the public with strategic talking points.

Peleg-Uziyahu, Israel’s representative in Denver, will share messages directly from the Israeli government.

“The community meeting demonstrates the newly enhanced coordinated leadership of the greater Denver Jewish community,” says Temple Sinai’s Rabbi Richard Rheins, president of the RMRC.

“Over the past year, the rabbis of Colorado’s largest synagogues and movements, together with the leaders of important Jewish organizations, have been meeting to strengthen the lines of communication and cooperation,” he says.

“Instead of waiting for inevitable events to unfold, we have already assembled a team of experts who will provide important information to all who care about Israel’s security at Sunday’s gathering.

“As we prepare for the New Year 5772, we invite every supporter of Israel — Jew and non-Jew alike — to join us on Sunday to learn, discuss and coordinate our efforts to protect the Jewish state of Israel.”

Also speaking at the community meeting are Rabbi Rheins; federation president and CEO Doug Seserman; Don Schlesinger of the AJC; Scott Levin of the ADL; Yona Ashkenazi of StandWithUs; and IJN Executive Editor Rabbi Hillel Goldberg.
