(LOS ANGELES) - With Israel's citizens under massive Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorist rocket attacks, the Israeli-American Council and other American Jewish groups organized rallies on May 12 across America in solidarity with Israel and its people. As the violence in Israel worsened, the IAC issued an "emergency call to action" to "Stand with Israel" and "stand up against terror." 

Jewish Federation CEO Keith Dvorchik and IAC Director Idit Lotringer quickly organized the rally.

In Orlando, Idit Lotringer, director of IAC Orlando, and Keith Dvorcik, CEO of the Jewish Federation, quickly organized a rally at Lake Eola. With less than 12-hours notice many residents joined Dvorchik and Lotringer to show their support for Israel.

In addition to Orlando's rally, rallies were held in major cities including in New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Austin, Cleveland, Houston, Irvine, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Redwood City (Silicon Valley), Bellevue in Seattle, Scottsdale, St. Louis, Washington, D.C. at the Israel Embassy, and West Palm Beach.

"We need to be there for Israel, and for our brothers and sisters, who are under brutal attack by terror organizations," said IAC Co-founder and CEO Shoham Nicolet.
