The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus and World Jewish Congress-Israel Honor
Christian Supporters of Israel

Tomorrow (Monday, 28 January 2013), at 19:00, at the King David Hotel, the
Knesset Christian Allies Caucus
http://cac.org.il/site/
and the World Jewish Congress
http://www.worldjewishcongress.org/
Israel will hold the seventh annual “Night to Honor Our Christian Allies”.
Knesset members from across the political spectrum and government leaders
will join both Jews and Christians at the King David Hotel for a reception
in honor of Christians who have been steadfast in their commitment to
Israel.

This year, organizers have chosen to award Dr. Petra Heldt, Director of the
The Ecumenical Theological Research Fraternity in Israel who recently
established the Protestant Consultation on Israel and the Middle East. The
Caucus, together with the Ministry for Tourism, will also honor Apostolate
Renę Terra Nova, leader of the International Restoration Ministries in
Manaus, Brazil, for his contribution to Israeli tourism. Apostolate Terra
Nova has brought tens of thousands of Christians to Israel over the past 10
years.

For the first time, the Mayor of Jerusalem, Hon. Nir Barkat, will address
the mixed audience of Christian and Jewish leaders. In addition, Caucus
Chairman MK Dudu Rotem will address guests on the importance of developing
Judeo-Christian relations based on the two religions’ mutual values as will
fellow Caucus member, and Chairman of the World Jewish Congress-Israel, Shai
Hermesh. Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel, KCAC Director Josh Reinstein, ICEJ
Executive Director Juergen Buehler and Reverend Tom Hess, President and
International Director of the All Nations Convocation Jerusalem will also
address the audience.
