About 2,000 young Diaspora Jews in Israel as part of the Masa program gathered in northern Israel in a show of solidarity following this summer’s war. The group held a solidarity march through the city of Acre. Some arrived from Jerusalem, where they met with Knesset members and with soldiers who fought in Lebanon. Masa is a program supported by the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency for Israel that helps support young Diaspora Jews during long-term stays in Israel, in hopes that the experience will forge lasting ties to the country.
