Columbus Supports Israel Event: Tuesday, November 27
As the situation in Israel remains uncertain, the Columbus Jewish community continues to stand strongly beside our brothers and sisters in Israel. On Tuesday, November 27, the Jewish Federation of Columbus and its Jewish Community Relations Committee are sponsoring "Columbus Supports Israel" at 7:30 PM at the JCC College Avenue (1125 College Avenue). The event will feature an update and briefing on the latest events in Israel, remarks from elected officials, and a strong show of solidarity and support for Israel.

Over the last few years, Israelis living in range of Gaza have been subject to a barrage of rockets launched by Hamas. Israeli adults and children know that when they hear the alert-siren, they have 15-45 seconds to find a nearby bomb shelter. The news is scary and at times difficult to comprehend, and impossible to turn off. Facebook and Twitter bring photos, stories and videos to parents and their children - truthful or not.
The Federation has two resources to help parents. The first contains expert advice on helping your child deal with crisis and tragedy. The second are action steps you and your family can take to stay informed and be strong advocates for Israel.
