HARRISBURG – Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33), chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, and Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-76), will host a news conference Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 2 p.m. in the Rotunda of the state Capitol, Harrisburg, to show support for Israel and its people following the barbaric terror attacks upon civilians perpetrated by Hamas.

Participants will include:
- Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33);
- Rep. Stephanie Borowicz;
- Members of the House and Senate;
- Alexandra Levine, national Jewish faith leader and internationally renowned opera singer;
- Members of the local Jewish community.
