"There will be no chanting at this rally, only a silent show of resistance," the event reads. "We hope all who come to the event will respect this."
Organizers say it's taken a lot of time and effort to plan the four rallies over the past several weekends, and that it's time they step back for a while.
However, they expect to hold a townhall-style event in the future to discuss the rallies and how to continue pushing for peace in Israel and Gaza.
