We are so glad you are coming to the March for Israel. Please keep the following important points in mind:
1. We are expecting a large crowd and there will be long lines for trains and security. Please help move lines along quickly by carefully reviewing the prohibited items list, and please remain patient. Everyone is doing their utmost to make this the best possible experience!
2. There may be people who seek to disrupt or provoke. Please remain calm, civil, and do not engage. Remember, the whole world is watching us!
3. Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention. If you see or experience anything of concern, tell the nearest security or event staff. We thank all the law enforcement agencies that are working so hard to keep us safe.
4. Please welcome all speakers and performers warmly, and join us in thanking the dignitaries and public officials present. Sing along to the music and pray along to the prayers. If you are moved to chant, we recommend “Bring them home!”
Thank you and travel safely.
Location and Entry Points
We anticipate a large turnout throughout the National Mall for the event. Video screens with a live audio feed of the program will be available outside the security perimeter on the Mall panels from 12th Street NW to 14th Street NW.
The main queue to enter the march begins on 12th Street NW between Madison Drive NW and Jefferson Drive SW.
Parking and Directions
We will have a designated bus parking spot available. Metered street parking is also available on the National Mall, but can be difficult to find.
The closest Metro stop to the march is the Smithsonian Station on the Orange, Blue, and Silver Lines. If arriving on the Green or Yellow line from points south, exit at the L’Enfant Plaza Station and walk to the Mall to avoid needing to switch lines. If arriving on the Green or Yellow line from points north, exit at Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter Station and walk to the Mall. If arriving on the Red Line, it may be better to get off at Metro Center Station and walk five blocks south to the Mall than needing to switch to another line to access a station closer to the Mall.
Download the Metro app and purchase a SmartTrip card in advance so you can more easily get to the march entrance, right by the Smithsonian Metro Station. Download the app here.
Metro Customers can get help or contact the Metro Transit Police Department if they see something of concern:
