Caucus Uniting Pro-Israel Christian Leaders with Israel's Parliament to Relaunch This Week
The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus is set to relaunch this week at the 23rd Knesset at the Friends of Zion Ambassador Institute in Jerusalem.
According to CBN News, the KCAC works as a link between pro-Israel Christian leaders and Israel’s Knesset, or parliament.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Friends of Zion International Chairman Dr. Mike Evans, Speaker of the Knesset Yariv Levin, US Ambassador David Friedman, and KCAC Director Josh Reinstein are expected to speak at the launch event.
“Our launch events are typically held in the Knesset with local Christian leaders in attendance. The coronavirus restrictions have actually given us a new opportunity to restructure this program and allow for a wider audience, spanning 42 countries and participation from world leaders and our international Israel Allies Caucus Chairman.
“This will bring home the message that faith-based diplomacy is the strongest weapon we have in the arsenal of international Israel advocacy” Reinstein said.
Israeli parliament member Sharren Haskel will deliver the keynote address. Haskel is serving as the Chairperson of the KCAC.
“This virtual event is a perfect example of efforts that can be extended even during these times of closed borders in order to reach out to our international base of supporters and encourage them to keep up their efforts in support for Israel,” Haskel said.
“My participation over the years as a member of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus has highlighted for me how Christian parliamentarians around the world have a commitment to Israel which lies in their hearts. Being unified under this network of the Israel Allies Foundation, gives these politicians the ability to unite and feel inspired to bring this commitment to life, bringing their beliefs into their political activity.”
The event will be streamed live on the Jerusalem Prayer Team Facebook page at 6 p.m. Israel time.
“We have 73 million followers just on Facebook,” said Friends of Zion International Chairman Dr. Mike Evans.“This event will be the social media event of the year in Israel”
