“Why Christians Support Israel” will be discussed by Randy Neal from  3 to 4:30 pm. Sunday, Feb. 16, at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road in Davis. Neal is Western Regional Director of Christians United for Israel, the largest Israel advocacy group in the world with more than 1.3 million members.

Neal will describe the origins and rapid growth of Christians United for Israel throughout the nation, in communities and on numerous campuses including UC Davis. He will highlight two recent CUFI-sponsored trips to Israel in December and in January, and discuss myths and misconceptions about Israel.

Christians United for Israel is the national organization that seeks to explain to Christians “the biblical and moral imperatives about supporting Israel.” Founded in 2006, it maintains a program of education, outreach and events. CUFI has a presence in all 50 states and organizes hundreds of pro-Israel events each year, including a Washington summit.

Based in Sacramento, Neal works with Christian leaders in 13 Western states. He has extensive experience in developing educational workshops and has spoken to hundreds of churches, synagogues and pro-Israel events.

Sponsored by the Israel Matters Committee of CBH, the program will be held in the CBH Social Hall. Questions following his presentation will be welcome.

For further information, contact George Rooks at gmrooks3@gmail.com or Al Sokolow at 530-758-3246.

    Christians should support Israel when it's doing the right thing. Currently, it's not. In the big picture, Christians shouldn't be taking sides.

    On Feb 11 in NYT columnist Friedman wrote an article that frames the issue of Israeli policy in a broad and honest way. It goes beyond the us vs them mentality, reflexive name calling that occurs on this issue, and ends with a dire prediction. Gives a snapshot of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions initiative. Certainly not the final word on the BDS but worth a read if you want to go beyond the scope of religious advocacy; although there is certainly value in that approach for that sector of society.

    All decent people with a moral compass should be supporting Israel.
