290,000 Gather for Israel Solidarity Rally in Washington, DC

An estimated 290,000 people from all walks of Jewish life gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., in a massive show of unity and support for the people of Israel, who have been under attack since Oct. 7. They likewise prayed and did mitzvahs, with countless Jewish men putting on tefillin at Chabad-Lubavitch’s dozens of mitzvah booths. Full Story, Photos, Video

Why the arrogance to shame people?
How did you become any wiser from before the event to after?
I assume attending helped you feel good about yourself but what other specific good did it accomplish practically? (Other than I showed my support…)

Not really

There are so many ways to support the IDF and pray for the hostages. Going to the rally was one way.

Huh?

Stahm. The number.

I’m so curious about the number that’s being provided as of people being there. It’s so exact. In any other demonstration the number would probably have been 300,000. For this one, it’s 290,000, as if estimators can be exact to the nearest 10,000 with such a large group. Only explanation I can conjure is that 300,000 sounds too large, as if the number providers wanted to make it sound smaller than it was. Like when pricing something you write $1.99 instead of $2
