CUFI Holds Greater Chattanooga Night To Honor Israel

Wednesday, May 8, 2019
On Tuesday, Christians United for Israel, the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, hosted a Night to Honor Israel at the Omega Center International in Cleveland. 
 
Pastor Randy Caldwell of Randy Caldwell Ministries served as the event’s master of ceremonies. He was joined on the stage by CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee, Pastor Perry Stone of Perry Stone Ministries, CUFI central region coordinator Lyndon Allen and Michael Dzik, the executive director of the Chattanooga Jewish Federation. 
 
“At this pivotal moment in American and world history, we are compelled by God’s word and our human conscience to stand with Israel and the Jewish people, and to shine a bright light on the rising tide of anti-Semitism sweeping across the country and the world.
Christians must let the world know that if a line must be drawn, let it be drawn around Christians and Jews, for we are spiritual brothers, who worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and we will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder against those who advance bigotry and hatred,” Pastor Hagee said.
 
Governor Bill Lee and Senators Lamar Alexander and Marsha Blackburn sent written greetings, and Israel’s Consul General to the Southeastern United States Ambassador Judith Varnai Shorer and Representatives Scott DesJarlais and Chuck Fleischmann sent video messages. 
 
“I applaud Christians United for Israel, and your hosts Pastor Perry Stone and the Omega Center International, for the work that is being done to foster warm relationships between two lighthouses of freedom, the United States and Israel,” Governor Lee said in his statement.
