September 13, 2001--Out of respect for the need to maintain tight security in the city of New York, and in support of law enforcement officials who are performing their duties under extremely difficult conditions, the IsraelNOW and Forever Solidarity Rally scheduled for Sunday September 23rd will not be held.

The UAHC and the other sponsors of the Rally encourage you to join with Jewish communal and religious groups in your local community on the 23rd to remember the innocent lives lost and to pray for an end to terrorism here and throughout the world.

The Jewish community is united in its resolve not to permit these horrific acts of terror to dictate the character of American society. Our tradition teaches us the reality of evil but reminds us, too, of our ability to overcome evil, to affirm hope, and to achieve healing. We stand in solidarity with our fellow Americans at this tragic time, and affirm our solidarity as well with the people of Israel, for many years a target for acts of terror.

Should you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Esther Lederman at
