To show solidarity with Israel, members of the Australian Jewish community and its friends and allies are being invited to be signatories on a letter to Israeli President, Isaac Herzog.
The letter, auspiced by the Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA) and United Israel Appeal (UIA) Australia is a powerful articulation of what so many in Australia’s Jewish and broader community are thinking and feeling.
“It reflects the deep connections, at many levels, between Australia and Israel and the concern the signatories share for Israel and her people at this challenging time,” ZFA president Jeremy Leibler said.
“Words matter, and it is hoped that the words of the letter will provide immense comfort and support.”
UIA Australia president Esther Frenkiel said, “Community members are asking what they can do; by simply signing the letter online they can show that they stand with Israel.”
The letter and the list of signatories will be hand-delivered to President Herzog later this month when representatives of the United Israel Appeal and Zionist Federation of Australia visit Israel.
The letter will be available for community members to sign until Friday, November 24. It is hoped that thousands of Australians will add their name to it.
