The rally will feature Israeli musical performances by Benny Elbaz, Ron Eliran, Gershon Veroba, and others as well as prominent speakers including Malcom Heonlein, Chariman of the Conference of Presidents, Michael Miller, CEO of JCRC, Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Rabbi Schmuel Butman, Head of the Lubavitch Organization, IDF Brigadier General Ari Tesler, and others.
