Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; after returning recently from an emotional trip to Israel, the head of the Jewish Federation of Houston joined thousands rallying to support Israel Sunday at Congregation Beth Israel in southwest Houston.
Lee Wunsch, president and CEO of the federation, said he got a first-hand look at the Israeli-Hamas conflict when he spoke to families there, including a mother, father and their two young boys whose apartment was hit by a rocket.
