Stand with Israel Vigils on College Campuses this Week to Counter Pro-terrorist Demonstrations
Texas A&M, Clemson, Georgia Tech to hold vigils November 7-9
Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Young Women for America (YWA) announced they are hosting a series of prayer vigils for Israel on college campuses around the country this week that will focus attention on the suffering of the Jewish people and victims of the horrific terrorist attacks on October 7, 2023. Texas A&M, Clemson, and Georgia Tech will hold vigils this week with other campuses following suit in the weeks ahead.
While antisemitism is on the rise and colleges around the country continue to see pro-terrorist rallies and sympathies for the perpetrators of the war in the Middle East, the prayer vigils will show support for Israel and take time to join with Christians, Jews, and others to pray for peace and justice.
“There is no equivocation in this conflict. Israel was mercilessly attacked, and innocent men, women, and children were murdered, raped, and victimized,” said Penny Nance. “We stand with Israel and against the demonic forces that would try to destroy its people. We recognize the special covenant that God made with the Jewish people, and we are instructed in the Bible to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We are fulfilling our calling by holding these important prayer events.”
Three campuses will hold events this week and others in the following weeks. Below are the details:
Tuesday, November 7, at 5:30 p.m. (CST)
Texas A&M University – Rudder Plaza
Wednesday, November 8, at 5:30 p.m. (EST)
Clemson University – Samuel J. Cadden Chapel
Thursday, November 9, at 6:30 p.m. (EST)
Georgia Tech University – The Campanile
