MIAMI BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Only seven decades since the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, the world is witnessing an alarming rise in global anti-Semitism and anti-Israel activities. Standing strong together against these threats, thousands of Jews and Gentiles will gather for “Never Again: A Community Rally in Response to the Rise in Worldwide Anti-Semitism and the Campaign Against Israel’s Right to Exist.”
WHEN: Sunday, November 15 at 4 p.m.
WHERE: Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, 1933-1945 Meridian Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139.
The Community Rally is sponsored by the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, its Jewish Community Relations Council, the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, the Consulate General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami, in partnership with 78 other organizations from throughout South Florida. Speakers will include members of the United States Congress.
The rally also is being presented in commemoration of the 77th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass.
Kristallnacht was marked by a series of coordinated attacks in Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938, which caused the deaths of 91 Jews and the incarceration of 30,000 in concentration camps. The streets were covered with broken glass from the shattered windows of Jewish-owned homes, stores and synagogues that were vandalized and looted during the attacks.
