Sheriff Grady Judd will attend and speak at the “Stand With Israel Rally” on Wednesday, October 11, at Temple Emanuel in Lakeland (600 Lake Hollingsworth Drive). The Rally will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sheriff Judd has been asked to be one of the scheduled speakers by the organizers of the Rally.
The Temple Emanuel Community invites those interested to join with them in this unity event: “Join us for a community solidarity rally as we seek comfort and strength through unity at this dire moment in history.”
“The moment we received information about the unprovoked and murderous terrorist attack on Israeli citizens, we put an operation in place to help protect those in Polk County’s Jewish community from anti-Semitic attacks. I unequivocally condemn the horrific and barbaric attack by Hamas terrorists. The level of violence and depraved indifference to human life displayed by the terrorists are almost inconceivable. The victims, their families, and all the people of Israel are in my prayers.” Grady Judd, Sheriff
