The rally in Washington last month was an amazing experience and show of unity. Looking back at some of the pictures from the rally, I was reminded of the signs of support.
It’s rare that we get a chance to unify as Jewish people in support of our nation. This was the time. Those who didn't show up should feel bad. Especially those people from Detroit who got stuck in the airport, due to bus drivers refusing to take them to the pro-Israel rally.
When you go to a rally, you bring signs. And when there is unity, you make signs. Hopefully with glitter. Glitter makes signs more exciting, and it brings bedazzled people together.
Here are some of the sings I saw:
It's good to know these people were not pro-terror. I didn't see a sign saying 'Terror. We Support You.' I don't believe anybody was holding up a 'Terror. We miss you.' This wasn't a pro-Palestinian rally in England or Australia. No Ivy League was willing to host the event.
Pro Peace. Anti Hamas. Pro Israel. Anti Bibi!
If I was them, I would've just had a sign, 'I hate Bibi.' That would've made the point stronger. Truth is, I think they were yelling, 'I hate Bibi.' That should've probably been the sign. Not everybody has time to make signs for everything they want to say.
Is Bibi part of Hamas? I am trying to figure out what the sign is truly trying to convey.
America Stands with Israel
That's good to know. That made me happy to see. At least one Jewish American stands with our people in Israel.
Come to think of it. I think it was an Israeli holding that sign. Wishful thinking.
Cleveland Stands with Israel
There was a lot of standing. At a rally, you want to stand. All the people with signs were standing with something.
I saw one or two people sitting. They weren't holding signs.
I need to go to the bathroom. Is there a clean toilet anywhere in Washington DC?!
That wasn't a sign. That was me yelling. I needed anything other than a porta-potty. They're disgusting.
I should be complaining to the organizers. If you're going to run a rally properly, you should have built in bathrooms. You budget.
Thank You Israel for Fighting Terror
That was held up by a group of people that insisted they were not willing to help.
Somebody held up that sign on a college campus and was attacked. No Israelis were around.
Free Hostages. Support Israel. Combat Terror!
I think he got in the important points, while repurposing the word 'free.' I hope they don't get sued by the Palestinians. I had to stop a guy who got angry when he saw the word 'free.' He came at them yelling, 'This is a pro-Israel rally.' I pulled that guy aside and told him he was too loud, and he should've made a sign saying, 'This is a pro-Israel rally.'
The only thing they left out of that sign is how much they hate Bibi.
Let Israel Finish the Job
Some people get in the way of hard-working people. That is just plain rude.
From the River to the Sea, Israel Will always Be Free.
Many Americans claimed this was a ploy to try to get better bargains in Israel.
Very confusing. I think this one was pro-Israel as well.
Cleveland. Stronger Than Hate .
I couldn't tell you. I don't live there. I don't know how much people in Cleveland hate each other. America makes fun of Cleveland. We don't hate it. I can understand the insecurity.
I am still worried it won't bring tourists to Ohio. There must've been a heart on that sign. I just wish it was bigger.
I saw no signs from people from Detroit. I think Detroit is stronger than hate. Detroit is a very strong word. It sounds stronger than Cleveland.
Signs I Would Have Liked to Have Seen
Israel. What a Country.
We love people. We even love Jews. I think this one would've caused a lot of controversy on college campuses.
New York Loves Israel. I know people from New York were there. They just didn't let people know they love Israel. I'm worried people thought that all the New Yorkers at the pro-Israel rally were there to protest Israel. Maybe they assumed that the Yarmulke is like a pro-Israel sign. To me, if you're not holding it up, it's not a sign. One guy was wearing it. That wasn't a sign. That was an A-frame.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Everybody loves Cyndi Lauper. I figure. If they love Cyndi, they'll love Israel. Associative rallying. We could've also had sings up saying 'Ice cream is great. And So is Israel.' That would've drawn support for the homeland.
Rochester New York Showed Up. Sometimes you just want to be noticed.
Jews Make Better Hummus. Sometimes you have to hit back hard.
And then there were signs for the hostages who were kidnapped, who we are still fighting to bring home. There were signs saying 'Bring Them Home,' as we chanted it together. One or two people had signs saying, 'Let My People Go.' Even though they got the rally confused with Pesach, as they saw a lot of Jews, they meant well.
There's no better way to make a statement to the world than with a sign. Otherwise, you're just yelling at everybody. It was heartwarming to see so many amazing signs of support at the rally. I personally didn't bring one. My arms get too tired to support Israel.

My kids take after me. Due to Kibud Av vEim, they always let me take first.
You get it? ‘Take after me' means to be like their dad. Instead, they let their dad fill his plate first, as per the Mitzvah to honor parents. Very good kids. If we can have a positive influence on the next generation with our puns, that is the blessing.
Giving Tzedakah, I like to know where the charity is going. That charity box in the front is for kids who need help with their artwork.
