(Edmonton) – The Jewish Federation of Edmonton is announcing a Solidarity Vigil on Wednesday October 25 at 5:30 pm at the Alberta Legislative Grounds for the 222 hostages that are being held captive in Gaza. The hostages were abducted during the horrific Oct. 7 massacre by Hamas which took place in Israel and over 1400 people were murdered.
Hamas is still holding 222 people, including children and babies, captive in Gaza.
“We are asking you to take a stand with our Jewish community to speak out for them and bring them home,” stated the Jewish Federation of Edmonton. “A vigil will take place on the Alberta Legislature Grounds with a short program. Printed images of the hostages will be available for the first 200 people who want to hold. You are welcome to bring Israeli flags and signs that state #BringThemHomeNow. A prayer will be said for the hostages.”
