Mass rallies were held both in Israel and around the world by the World Zionist Organization on Sunday in the wake of recent antisemitic events. The ralliers called governments in each of their respective countries to raise the issue of antisemitic incidents to the top of their priorities.

Rallies were held around the world, including in Jerusalem, Times Square in New York, the Great Synagogue Plaza in Paris, and many more.

"We stand here today in these different locations around the world to say enough," said Deputy Chairman of the World Zionist Organization and Head of the Struggle against Antisemitism Jacob Hagoel. "We are in a difficult and painful period that has deteriorated rapidly from the scrawling of caricatures and antisemitic graffiti, past the destruction of graves and reaching the point of physical harm to Jews in numerous countries."


"In the past, we could not do anything because we were a submissive, persecuted people," said Avraham Duvdevani, Chairman of the World Zionist Organization. "We have met here today to bring to the attention of the people living in Zion that antisemitism abroad is our problem and not just that of our brothers outside of Israel."

Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi David Lau explained that "I do not hate a man even if his face is different from mine, even if his opinions are different from mine, even if his origins are different from mine."
