Standing with Israel

“And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”” (Genesis 12:3)


In 1938 God raised up The Friends of Israel to help Jewish people escape the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust. Today we continue to stand against every form of anti-Semitism and support the right of the Jewish people to live in their ancient homeland, Israel. Below you will find a variety of opportunities to stand in solidarity with God’s chosen people.

                             Zion Connection takes a                                 thoughtful, sensitive look                               at relations between

                            Jewish people and                                           evangelical Christians. And                             it tackles such                                                   controversial issues as                                   anti-Semitism, the rise of Islam, the right of Jewry to a homeland in the Middle East, and whether Christians should try to reach Jewish people with the gospel message—and how.
