A special event to show solidarity with the innocent civilian hostages, taken by Hamas in the massacre on Simchas Torah will take place near Crown Heights on Friday.
Hamas terrorists abducted over 200 innocent civilians, including infants and Holocaust survivors. The group of victims includes men, women and children of all ages. They are Argentinians, Germans, Americans, French, Russians, and Israelis.
A fully set Shabbos table with over 200 empty chairs will be set up on Eastern Parkway to bring awareness and demand the hostages immediate return.
The event is taking place in Brooklyn, in front of the landmark Brooklyn Museum and is being organized by a group of local Jewish residents.
“Come stand with us and show solidarity as we declare that our society has no room for innocent victims being taken hostage,” said Sam Stern, a prominent Crown Heights activist.
“The event is coordinated by local Jews at the grassroots level. Two hundred empty seats at the Shabbos table will be set to raise awareness. I support this peaceful event and will attend,” said Rabbi Yaacov Behrman, Jewish Future Alliance.
