Today: 3-4 PM, Watch a discussion on Israel

Evangelicals & Israel

This afternoon I will be participating in a discussion with Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, Executive Vice President of the Rabbinical Assembly, before an audience of 1,000 people. Our topic will be Evangelical support for Israel. The event is being hosted by the American Jewish Committee's Global Forum, and is part of our continuing work with Christians United for Israel.

This audience will include many people who are skeptical of Evangelicals' support for Israel. The American Jewish Committee is among the more liberal Jewish groups, and its members generally don't agree with us on other values issues.

As Israel faces growing uncertainty in an ever-chaotic Middle East, I hope to break through the skepticism that divides Evangelicals and Jews so that we can work together to combat the Islamofascists who want us all dead, regardless of our faith or politics. I would appreciate your prayers as I take part in this conversation.

I invite you to watch our discussion online this afternoon from 3:00 to 4:00 PM EST. To register for this session of the AJC Global Forum, click here.
