Honoring Christian Friends of Israel

I participated in an event of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus this week, its fifth annual “Night to Honor Our Christian Allies” in conjunction with the World Jewish Congress. Knesset members joined, MKs David Rotem, Yoel Hasson, Shaul Hermesh and Arye Eldad.

These are Christians who have been steadfast in their commitment to Israel.

Karel van Oordt, founder of the pro-Israel, Christians for Israel, was given an award as well as Marisa Albert, executive director of the East Gate Foundation, for her contribution to Israeli tourism.

The KCAC is a bi-partisan caucus comprised of eighteen Knesset members from across the political spectrum. Established in 2004 by the late Dr Yuri Shtern, it is today chaired by Knesset Member David Rotem. The caucus aims to forge direct lines of communication between Knesset members and Christian leaders, organizations and political around the world.  Josh Reinstein is the Director.
