I noticed that you had two beautifully written Opinion pieces (Aug. 8) next to each other about helping Israel — Rabbi Avi Weiss’ “Comforting The Wounded, Worrying About Family” and Francine Klagsbrun’s “Do Israelis Know How Much We Really Care?”
Ms. Klagsbrun’s friends in Israel ask the very same question that I have been asking: Why aren’t American Jews marching in Washington, D.C.? A number of years ago I remember the very large rally in our nation’s capital in support of Israel. We need to duplicate it now more then ever. Let’s show support not only to Israel but lets also use this rally to support members of our U.S. military who, through air strikes against terrorists, are now being deployed in Iraq.
Let us also highlight the suffering of all freedom-loving people such as the Christian population in Iraq.
