Walking for Israel
Stars of David glistened in the sun as 1,000 supporters of Israel participated in the fourth annual Walk for Israel in West Bloomfield, Michigan, in May.
Walkers came in all ages and sizes, from children to the elderly and from Israelis to Asians. Waving Israeli flags and declaring their support for the Jewish state, all made the mile-long trek that began at Temple Shir Shalom, a main sponsor of the event.
About 40 Jewish groups participated. The only evangelical-Christian sponsor was The Friends of Israel (FOI).
Under the direction of Church Ministries Representative Tim Munger, FOI manned a literature table that offered the May/June 2008 issue of Israel My Glory, which celebrated Israel’s 60th anniversary; the popular booklet Five Facts You Should Know About Israel by Renald Showers; and informational brochures about our summer ORIGINS tour to Israel for people ages 17 to 26.
