Smith to offer a prayer as part of official program at national rally for Israel in Washington today
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Co-Chair of the Israel Allies Caucus, is scheduled to lead those gathered in Washington, DC for a national rally in support of Israel in prayer on Tuesday afternoon on the National Mall.
As Co-Chair of the House Task Force for Combating Antisemitism, Smith will be one of four Members of Congress offering a prayer at the rally together with his fellow Co-Chairs Rep. Kathy Manning (D-NC), and Sens. James Lankford (R-OK) and Jacky Rosen (D-NV).
The “Americans March for Israel” rally—which is expected to draw tens of thousands of people—is being organized by the Jewish Federations of North America in collaboration with the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
In addition to showing strong solidary for Israel, the event is aimed at bringing together people from across the country to demand the immediate release of the remaining hostages held captive by Hamas and condemn the rise of antisemitism following the barbaric terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli civilians on October 7th.
