CUFI Launches New Millennial-Focused "Israel Collective" Initiative, Releases Two Short Films

On Tuesday, Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, announced the establishment of a new initiative, “The Israel Collective,” aimed at building relationships between American Christians, Israelis, and people of good will throughout the Arab and Islamic world.

This initiative is a direct response to efforts by Israel’s detractors to mislead America’s Christians into turning against the Jewish state. The initiative’s announcement coincided with the release of two new films, “My Brother’s Keeper” and “Israel Collective: Los Angeles.” The former follows three individuals, an Arab-Israeli priest, a Muslim Zionist, and a Holocaust survivor, as they join CUFI on Campus at some of America’s most anti-Israel universities to speak out in support of the Jewish state, and the latter examines the life-changing visit of three Los Angeles-based Christians to the Holy Land.

“The millennial generation of evangelicals has an admirable focus on the core Christian values of compassion and love. I find it tragic that the Israel haters have rushed to hijack these noble morals for their bitter cause. We owe it to our young people and to Israel to make sure the truth is told and heard. We’re thrilled to see the power of our truth already making a difference,” said CUFI executive director David Brog.

“Dictators across the Middle East promote violence against anyone who opposes them, minorities, and the Jewish state. Yet there are courageous individuals — many of them Christian — that though they live under tyrannical, anti-Israel regimes, vocally support human rights and oppose violence against Israel. The Israel Collective is dedicated to telling their stories and building unity between American Christians, the people of Israel, and those courageous Middle Eastern peacemakers who dare to love Israel even if they are persecuted for it,” explained Joshua Ahrens, who oversees The Israel Collective in his capacity as CUFI’s Millennial Outreach Coordinator.

The Israel Collective, an initiative of Christians United for Israel, is dedicated to creating a community of young Christian peacemakers to build bridges between American Christians and Israel. As followers of Jesus, we are called to love others as He loved them and to bring joy and life to all our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land and beyond. Learn more at www.Israelcollective.org.

Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its message. Each year CUFI holds hundreds of pro-Israel events in cities around the country. And each July, thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington, D.C. to participate in the CUFI Washington Summit and make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people.

The Israel Pledge

We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.

We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.

We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors.
