“It’s a tough situation because of the facts on the ground,” Sathasivam said. “Gaza is a highly populated area where it’s tough to distinguish between good guys and bad guys.”
Shirat Hayam’s HaLevi said one has to accept that there are evil people in the world.
“We say as Jews, ‘never again,’ after the Holocaust, and when we say, ‘never again,’ it’s not just words, it’s actions,” HaLevi said.
“Stay informed” was the message of Chabad of the North Shore’s Lipsker during the rally, he said. “Stay informed, really, really informed. As Jewish people, we come together, and we pray.”
