The Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women’s co-presidents, Joan Ornstein and Paula Star, went to the March for Israel in Washington on November 14. Mr. Ornstein’s daughter-in-law, Lindsay Ornstein, and two of her granddaughters joined the NCJW co-presidents at the march to show support for Israel and for freeing the hostages, and to protest antisemitism, which has increased in the U.S. since the Israel-Hamas war began in October.
