  • US President Joe Biden is scheduled to land in Israel tomorrow (Wednesday) morning Israel Time, in a highly significant show of solidarity and support.
  • Across North America, the Jewish world, and of course in Israel itself, people continue to rally to support all those Israelis affected by the fighting.
