Jewish-Led Protest on Capitol Hill Demands Lawmakers Support Gaza Ceasefire

HeadlineNov 14, 2023

In Washington, D.C., dozens of rabbis were joined by spiritual leaders and hundreds of others for a morning prayer and reading of the Torah in front of the U.S. Capitol Monday, calling for a ceasefire in Gaza. After the special Shacharit service, rabbis and supporters marched to congressional offices, where they met with elected officials. This is Congressmember Cori Bush.

Rep. Cori Bush: “We are rabbis. We are pastors. We are congressmembers. We are surviving family members. We are human beings. And we are bound by our faith to demand a ceasefire now, to demand an end to the violence now, to demand that love and peace and justice and humanity reigns and is at the center of all of our work now — not tomorrow, not next week, not in a month, not in a year. Now. Ceasefire now! Ceasefire now! Ceasefire now!”
