Some people around the Chicago area showed their solidarity with Israel Sunday by taking part in the Walk with Israel.

Events were held in six locations around the Chicago area, including one in south suburban Flossmoor.

The walks were organized by the Jewish United Fund - Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago.

In addition to showing their support for Israel, the walkers also raised money to buy school supplies for needy school children in that country.
