House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) on Tuesday night hosted a bipartisan candlelight vigil for Israeli victims and hostages taken by Hamas during its attack against Israel on October 7.

“This is, as you can see a bipartisan gathering because we know that today is a solemn day. It was one month ago, on this date in the early hours of Oct. 7 that Hamas terrorists waged the bloodiest assault on Israel and Jewish life since the Holocaust,” Johnson said at the vigil, as quoted by The Hill.

Johnson reiterated Congress’ support for Israel, vowing to do “all we can to support” the country as it fights its war with Hamas. Johnson also touched on GOP leaders’ meeting with the families of hostages who were taken by Hamas.

“We thank those families for joining us this morning and more they are here today. They’ve shared their stories allowing the American people to understand and have some real insight into what they are facing together there,” Johnson said. “We stand with them in that and we thank this large bipartisan collection of members standing behind us here today for their results to bring an end to this chaos and destruction.”

Jeffries also offered remarks at the vigil, again reiterating his support for Israel and promising to do “everything in our power” to bring the hostages home.

“We gather to unequivocally condemn the acts of terror, honor the memory of those brutally murdered and pray for the safe return of those held hostage,” Jeffries said, according to The Hill.

The vigil concluded with lawmakers holding a moment of silence for the Israeli victims before Johnson offered a prayer to end the event.
