About 100 people met at the Tallinn synagogue to express their support for Israel during its current conflict with Lebanon on July 25.
The hundred or so people who gathered in the synagogue was fewer than expected as the event was publicized on a very modest scale, Irina Stelmach, a Jewish journalist, told BNS.
Irina Stelmach, a Jewish journalist, told BNS that members of the parliamentary Israeli caucus wanted to attend the meeting, but could not make it.
Estonia's chief rabbi Shmuel Kot read a prayer at the meeting. Other speakers included Boris Oks, the head of the Jewish congregation, and Alla Jakobson, the leader of the Jewish community.
