Monday’s community gathering, co-sponsored with Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), Israeli American Council (IAC), and many other community organizations, brought more than 4,500 attendees to Boston Common. In a strong demonstration of allyship and support, we heard from Rabbi Marc Baker; Governor Maura Healey; Boston Mayor Michelle Wu; NAACP Boston President Tanisha Sullivan; and many others who said, unequivocally, that Boston stands with Israel and Boston stands against terrorism.
