Demonstrations at airports around the country last weekend (Jan. 28-29) protesting President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration included a gathering at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix in which members of the local Jewish community participated.

Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz, founder of Arizona Jews for Justice, was there, and he estimated the crowd at about 500 people gathered on the curb outside Terminal 4, including possibly dozens from his organization, local synagogues and other Jewish organizations.
