WESTWOOD (CBSLA) – A crowd gathered Sunday outside the federal building on Wilshire in support of peace for Israel and against Hamas amid the current ceasefire in the region.

Some community officials and faith leaders joined demonstrators.

“We are showing our pride for Israel,” Tilly Levy Feldman, a pro-Israeli supporter told CBSLA. “We are standing strong, showing not only our Israeli pride, but our strong Jewish pride.”

The event was organized by the group Young Jewish Zionists.
