Qatar Embassy Gathering

Our gatherings at the Embassy of Qatar are making a difference. But our efforts won't stop until all the hostages are home.

Our next two gatherings are Thursday, March 28 and Thursday, April 18th both at 12:00 PM outside the Embassy of Qatar (2555 M. St., NW) to keep insisting that the Qataris apply maximum pressure on Hamas to alter its unreasonable demands on an agreement that would release the more than 130 hostages being held in Gaza for more than five months.

Why Qatar?

Qatar provides funding to Hamas and offers refuge to its leadership.

Qatar has helped to successfully mediate the release of more than 100 hostages. 

But this is not enough.

Qatar must use its enormous leverage over Hamas and demand the immediate release of more than 130 remaining hostages who have now surpassed 100 days in captivity.

We want them home now.  

What are we doing?

The Washington, D.C. region is home to the nation’s third largest Jewish community, and the Qatari Embassy is in the heart of the District of Columbia.

Our Jewish community is uniquely positioned to stress the absolute need for Qatar to prioritize the release of American and Israeli hostages. 

We will peacefully gather to demand Qatar exert maximum pressure on Hamas to set free all remaining hostages. This is the same message expressed in a bipartisan letter to President Biden last month.

With limited nearby parking options, we strongly encourage attendees to use public transportation. The closest metro stations are Foggy Bottom-GWU (Blue/Orange/Silver) and Dupont Circle (Red).

Materials and signage will be handed out at the gathering. Israeli and American Flags and hostage posters are welcome.

If your synagogue or organization is interested in sponsoring a gathering in the coming weeks, please contact Adam Odesser
