Defaced display honoring Israeli hostages to be restored, unveiled Sunday

Last month, a display at a home along Homer Street showing photos of Israelis taken hostage by Hamas on Oct. 7 was vandalized. Someone had sprayed black paint on much of the display and ripped many pf the photos to shreds.

This weekend, community members are fighting back by putting the display back up on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.

The grassroots event, with a “Unite Against Antisemitism” theme, is expected to draw hundreds of supporters and volunteers to put the display back up. A hundred students will be there to unveil the new wall.

The public is invited, Jews and non-Jews, to the display rededication. Mayor Ruthanne Fuller will speak, in addition to U.S. Rep. Jake Auchincloss.

Homer Street will be closed to traffic during the event.
