But not everyone has the time or ability to take the train to Times Square and jostle through the crowd to shout Am Yisrael Chai. In this crisis moment, when the Israeli response to rioting and rocket attacks has inspired open expressions of anti-Semitism from the political left, Jews and their allies across the country are speaking out in their hometowns and villages.
