WASHINGTON — The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations is convening an Israel solidarity event in Washington for Jewish leaders.

The National Leadership Assembly, set for Monday at the National Press Club, “will be an important opportunity to let the people of Israel know that they are not alone as they face the continuing onslaught of terrorist attacks, with missiles launched at civilian populations by Hamas terrorists in Gaza,” a statement from the umbrella body said.

“Hundreds” of community leaders from across the country are expected to attend, according to the statement, and leaders in Congress and the Obama administration also will be invited.

The same day, a mass rally for Israel is planned in New York.
