The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County has been working with its community members to host a series of gatherings to show solidarity with Israel.

On Oct. 12, Boca Woods welcomed more than 200 residents, including non-Jews, joined to mourn for those lost; to pray for those wounded, missing, and held hostage; and to show support for the people of Israel.

Rabbi Josh Broide shares photos from the event held Oct. 18 at The Polo Club of Boca Raton.

If other communities in our area would like to hold a similar event for their residents, please contact Chief Development Officer Jennifer Koenig at
