More than a dozen synagogues across the United States held rallies and ceremonies this week to mark the first anniversary of Israel’s Gaza withdrawal. A New York rally organized by Americans for a Safe Israel attracted about 300 people and was aimed at “responding to the humanitarian needs of our brothers and sisters in Israel by providing moral and financial support,” the group said. Some 8,500 Israelis were uprooted from Gaza Strip settlements in the withdrawal.
