More than 2,500 people filled Safran Park on the grounds of the Mandel Jewish Community Center Tuesday evening for a “Solidarity Rally For Israel.”
The large turnout, estimated at 2,800 people, included Jews and Christians who gathered to hear speakers talk of how to show support for Israel in its ongoing conflict with Hamas, and to pray for peace.
The Mishnah teaches that “Mishenichnas Av mema’atim besimcha,” “Once Av enters, we decrease our happiness” (Taanis 26b). Although the Mishnah does not clarify what we must do to decrease our happiness, the Gemara (Yevamos 43a) lists four activities that are banned during these days:
(1) We decrease our business activities.
(2) We refrain from construction and planting intended for joyous reasons (Yerushalmi Taanis, cited by Tosafos, Yevamos 43a s.v. Milisa).
(3) We do not conduct weddings.

Delta has canceled all flights to Israel indefinitely, citing a report of a rocket near the airport in Tel Aviv.
The airline said it had to divert a 273-passenger flight to France because of reports of a rocket or associated debris near Ben Gurion International Airport.
It said it suspended service until further notice between the Israeli airport and it’s New York-JFK hub.
