What can I say other than,
“thank you!”

Event's testimonials

From the moment we began the Daughter’s for Zion prayer meeting we could sense the presence of God at the Fifth Annual Christians United for Israel Summit in Washington D.C. like never before. Scripture after scripture was fulfilled by the over 4,500 attendees from every state in the union. 
During prayer we could hear the rain shower down on the convention center and I turned to Diana and said, “It is the sign of the blessing!” Over 1,500 people joined us in prayer and worship which fulfilled Psalm 122:6,

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem…

Following prayer we were invited by Rabbi Scheinberg and several other Orthodox rabbis to join them in observing Tisha B’Av, which is a set time of mourning over the destruction of the temples in Jerusalem. Nearly 1,000 Christians and Jews, including the State of Israel's Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, sat on the floor and were led in the reading of the book of Lamentations. This event was a first in the history of Christianity! It was a moment of divine unity! We could sense God’s blessing even more as Psalm 133 became a reality,

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity…For there the LORD commanded the blessing--life forever.

Word of Faith Church from North Carolina provided a Holocaust Museum exhibition that rivaled any I have seen. As we and our Jewish friends walked through the beautiful and yet somber display of our history with the Jewish people you could sense Isaiah 40:1 come alive,

Comfort, O comfort My people," says your God.

We opened our meeting Tuesday morning with one session after another providing education to those in attendance of the biblical reasons Christians should support Israel and up to the minute information of the current conditions in Israel and the Middle East. The Prime Minister, via live feed during the Middle East Briefing, brought greetings and thanks for CUFI’s support.  The last event at the convention center was the finest Night to Honor Israel that we have ever had in Washington, D.C. 

The next day CUFI delegates from 477 congressional districts met with their Senators and Congressman on the Hill and voiced their support of Israel and the Jewish people. Once again you could sense the Lord’s guidance as Isaiah 62:1 was fulfilled,  

For Zion's sake I will not keep silent,
         And for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep quiet…

I want to thank the leadership and every delegate who made the sacrifice to attend the Summit. I ask that you save the date for the sixth annual Washington Summit, July 18-20, 2011. We must only grow stronger in our support of Israel and the Jewish people.


Onward, Christian Zionists- The fastest growing Israel support group in America

In Washington, D.C.’s convention center they danced the horah, sang Hebrew songs, and waved American and Israeli flags. Charlie Daniels played Hatikvah on his fiddle. It wasn’t a bar mitzvah, or a gathering of the pro-Israel group AIPAC. It was the fifth annual summit of an even larger pro-Israel organization, the nation’s largest: Christians United for Israel, better known as CUFI.   Click here to read more.

Evangelical Christians in America have become Israel's staunchest ally in a world increasingly hostile to the Jewish state. That support was on full display this week in the nation's capital as over 4,000 Christians and Jews gathered at the Washington Convention Center for the annual Christians United for Israel summit. CUFI is now the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States with over 400,000 members nationwide - including chapters on college campuses throughout the U.S. Click here to read more.

Roughly 4,500 people gathered for the fifth annual Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Washington Summit, where they lobbied lawmakers to maintain the nation's historic support for Israel and declared their solidarity with the Jewish state. The three-day event ended Thursday.
"Israel's enemies are our enemies; Israel's fight is our fight," CUFI founder John Hagee (pictured) told the crowd at the Night to Honor Israel event Wednesday. "If a line has to be drawn, then let it be drawn around both of us: Christians and Jews, Americans and Israelis." Click here to read more.

Christians Speak Up: Holocaust Survivors Find their Voices
Excerpts of an article that first appeared in The American Thinker

The audience, a cross section of America, included high school students, CUFI on Campus groups, senior citizens moving with the assistance of canes, families with children, African-American ministries, Hispanic churches, cowboy churches, urbanites, suburbanites, ranchers, scientists, bond brokers, travel agents and golfers. They were from all fifty states and as diverse as a group can get, yet they spoke with one voice and cheered wildly as the speakers reaffirmed the CUFI pledge 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.
