Israelis came together in Jerusalem on Sunday to participate in a rally parallel to the “No Hate, No Fear” march in New York protesting anti-Semitism in the US and around the world.

The event, which took place in the Jewish Agency’s courtyard in Jerusalem, was held in support of the US march organized by UJA-Federation of New York, which took place in response to the recent wave of hate crimes against Jews in the New York area and drew about 25,000 people.

The Jerusalem rally, held in parallel with the march in New York, was organized by the Jewish Agency for Israel, World Zionist Organization (WZO) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
