Sun, 5/26/24 - Tue, 5/28/24 Beit Haam Jerusalem, Jerusalem
March of the Nations in Israel 2024
On October 7, 2023, Israel was shaken to the very core by the Hamas attack. Although even since its founding on May 14, 1948, Israel had been repeatedly attacked by overpowering enemies, it became a safe haven for Jews from all over the world.
On October 7, 2023, more than 1200, mostly young people, were brutally raped, killed and burned to death in a matter of hours. They had to die just because they were Jews. The horror of the Holocaust returned to Israel on October 7! And instead of consoling Israel and standing side by side with her, the world once again put the Jewish state in the dock.
The people of Israel are traumatized and wonder who they can still trust. With the government, army and security services having failed and most nations standing against Israel, many feel completely abandoned.
Israel is at war. And there is no other option but to win it. A young generation is becoming responsible soldiers and heroic fighters, ready to lay down their lives for Erez Israel.
The March of the Nations is calling people to stand with Israel during this time. In good times, it is easy to combine “sightseeing” with a spiritual program. But now Israel needs people to come to actively help, encourage and show on the streets that they stand with Israel.
The Conference in Jerusalem on May 26-27, 2024
The conference venue “Beit Ha'Am” in the center of Jerusalem is the historic site of the trial and conviction of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, which became a milestone for a new future in Israel. The March of the Nations Conference will take place in the former courtroom on May 26-27, 2024. In addition to times of prayer and worship, relatives of hostages and survivors of the attack will share their stories. Politicians and IDF soldiers, artists, worshippers and the performance of the musical “Exodus 1947” will make the conference an extraordinary event.
March of the Nations on May 28, 2024 in Beer Sheva, Ashkelon and other Cities in Israel
The cities in Israel are particularly eager to welcome the March of the Nations this year. The mayors are preparing attractive programs with encounters with Holocaust survivors and relatives of the victims of October 7. Together with the international participants of the March of the Nations, they will make a statement of hope on the streets: "After October 7 together into a New Future".
A Word on Security
Despite the tense situation, Israel is a country where you can move around normally and without fear if you observe certain safety regulations. At the same time, we are monitoring and evaluating the current situation in close consultation with the local authorities and will adapt the program if necessary.
