Touro University Stands Up for Israel

(Courtesy of Touro University) Touro students, deans and leaders turned out by the hundreds to show their support for Israel at Tuesday’s rally in Washington DC.

“Touro students came to show their solidarity with Israel, solidarity with the hostages, and solidarity with the American Israeli relationship,” said Touro President Dr. Alan Kadish.

“We’re proud of our students. We’re proud of the activism. We’re proud of their show of support and we’re proud of who they are as human beings.”

Adriel Kohan, the Lander College for Men Student Government Vice President, said “The rally was a very impactful event for me. Seeing so many people, all united for the same cause, was very inspiring and increased my sensitivity to the situation in Israel. By bringing us to this event, Touro showed that it values the unity of the Jewish people.”

“Often as a people who have been broken apart and spread across the globe, we can forget what it means to be an am echad, a united nation,” said Talia Stauber, president of the Student Government at Touro’s Lander College for Women. “I came to Washington today to remember its meaning. I came, along with so many other Touro students, to ensure that eicha yashva badad will never be asked again. Never again will our land, our people, suffer alone.”
