Dershowitz is one of America's most distinguished voices of civil liberties
who has also published several books and more than 100 articles in respected
magazines and journals such as The New York Times Magazine, The Washington
Post and The Wall Street Journal.
The rally will also feature a live satellite video feed from Sderot,
where it will be 3 in the morning. Sderot residents will share stories of
their daily lives with Torontonians and Sderot's youth choir will also perform
via live satellite.
