“All of us at the Montana Jewish Project offer our heartfelt support to community members who are hurting from the horror that continues to unfold in Israel, especially those whose family and friends have been affected, injured, or displaced,” event organizers wrote in an email Wednesday. “We join together in empathy and solidarity.”
The war began after Hamas militants stormed into Israel on Saturday, bringing gunbattles to its streets for the first time in decades. The war has claimed more than 2,200 lives on both sides and is expected to escalate. Dozens have been dragged into Gaza as captives, the Associated Press reported.
