My teacher Rabbi Joshua “J.B.” Borenstein attended the March for Israel rally at the National Mall in Washington on Tuesday. He advises that the best speaker among those who addressed the nearly 300,000 at the Mall was Mijal Bitton. John Podhoretz agrees in his brief Commentary post “The wonderful gathering.” Bitton’s remarks are posted in the video below via her Twitter feed. The truth quotient here approximates 100 percent.
“We stand here united and proud as Americans who are going to fight back against terror, who will fight back against antisemitism everywhere, in our streets and in our universities!”
Grateful for the honor of addressing this historic show of support for Israel and America 🙏 pic.twitter.com/h39FSg7k9I

Video of the event in its entirety is accessible here. J.B. also recommends the young lady — the daughter of Iranian Jewish refugees to America — who speaks at 40:50 of the video. Again, the truth quotient approximates 100 percent. Love of the United States was a prominent motif of the event.
