Jewish community members in Skokie outside of Chicago have organized an exhibit of 30 empty strollers to raise awareness about the 30 children currently being held hostage in Gaza along with roughly 210 others.

In each stroller sits a flier containing a biography of a different child hostage along with an Israeli flag.

Roughly 150 community members sing psalms along with the Israeli national anthem.

Several people driving by shout obscenities at the Jewish participants, including, “kill the babies!”

Full disclosure: The mother of a Times of Israel reporter organized the demonstration.
