At this challenging time, Jewish Israel would like to express appreciation to all good people across the political and religious spectrum – Jew and Gentile alike - who are taking a moral stand with Israel.
It’s heartening to hear the many voices who respect individual and national borders; who can discern right from wrong; and who strive for a humane and civil society.
We ask those Jewish community leaders who choose to work with evangelical organizations to try and ensure that Christian friends express their support in a manner that respects the unique nature of Judaism. Gentile support for Israel need not be couched in terms of “covenantal” or “biblical” mandates, or tied to “Judeo-Christian” ideologies that would cause the Jewish people to cross forbidden lines and in turn exacerbate disunity among our Jewish brethren.
It’s a well-known precept that unity among the nation of Israel will bring unity and peace to the entire world.
