Young Leaders from Haifa and Boston in Haifa last March
The following is an open letter written by residents of Haifa, Israel who are involved with the Young Leadership Committee of the Boston-Haifa Connection. The Young Leaders wrote this letter in response to the news that Jewish and pro-Israel students had been assaulted at a Boston rally protesting Israel's actions in Gaza earlier this month:
"We were moved by the courage of Jewish students in Boston who demonstrated solidarity with Israel, and were shocked and appalled to hear about the attack on them on Friday.
We would like you to know that when you stand for Israel, you are not alone. With you stand thousands of Israeli families from Sderot, Beer Sheva, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and many other cities, whose homes are under unceasing fire.
In these hard and turbulent times, the support of our friends in Boston is especially heart-warming and is not taken for granted"
