In a touching display of support and concern for a young Pakistani girl who stood up to the Taliban and was rewarded with a gunshot to her head, more than 2,000 Jews prayed – in unison – for her recovery.

The event was held at the Anti Defamation League’s (ADL) 18th annual Concert Against Hate at Washington’s Kennedy Center. ADL National Director Abraham Foxman dedicated the event to 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai.
