Stand with Israel Event

Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33), other state lawmakers, religious leaders, a member of the Israeli legislature and others will gather Monday, June 10, at 9 a.m. in the state Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg, to show support for the nation of Israel and its people in their ongoing war in Palestine.

Mastriano introduced a resolution last fall that was approved by the Senate and condemned the Oct. 7 Hamas attack against Israel. Mastriano also is introducing legislation to defund antisemitism on state-funded colleges and universities by ending state taxpayer support for schools that authorize, facilitate or otherwise support an event promoting antisemitism on campus. He also has authored legislation to mandate age-appropriate Holocaust education in all Pennsylvania schools.

Participants who will be there in person or remotely will include:

  • Rep. Stephanie Borowitz (R-76);
  • Pastor Chandy Thomas, Life Center Ministries, Harrisburg;
  • Pastor Charles Stock, Life Center Ministries, Harrisburg;
  • Pastor Buck Shaefer, Grace Life Church, Pittsburgh;
  • Ohad Tal, member of the Religious Zionist Party in the Israeli legislature, or Knesset;
  • Asher Intrater, president of Tikkun Global.
