Israel : Challenge and Celebrations

From May 23-30, four Friends of Israel Staff and four pastors joined the Zionist Organization of America’s Yom Yerushalayim Day (Jerusalem Day) Leaders Mission in Israel. We heard from Knesset Ministers, Military leaders, and Civic Leaders about local threats to sovereignty and security. We were able to put into practice our mission of supporting Israel. One pastor summarized his experience like this: “It was an excellent time of learning and refreshment that will benefit my ministry going forward.” One ZOA leader said, “To share a Zionist experience with leaders in the Christian community in the Holy Land is something I will treasure forever.”

It touched each one of us in a special way. Here are some photos of our time together:
