Hundreds of Jewish and Christian supporters of Israel came together in London on November 7, 2013 for a groundbreaking celebration of the ties between the two communities in Britain.

The interfaith event, “A Night to Honor Israel”, was an endeavor by the Zionist Federation, in cooperation with Bridges for Peace, a Jerusalem-based organization that focuses on pro-Israel advocacy in the Christian community.

Some 900 people turned out for the event at Logan Hall in Russell Square, and the speakers included Eitan Na’eh, Israel’s deputy ambassador to the Court of St. James; Josh Reinstein, the director of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus; and Claire Lomas, the first British user of the Israeli-designed “Re-Walk” robotic suit, and the first paraplegic to complete a marathon wearing this device. Providing the entertainment were, among others, violinist Ariella Zeitlin-Hoffman and members of the Israeli Opera.

Reinstein called on supporters of Israel to stand up to critics of Zionism, branding anti-Zionism “the newest form of anti-Semitism.”

“It is up to people of faith, both Jews and Christians to come together around the world in order to combat this new form of evil” he said.

  • Its not only great to see what should be taking place all over America. The coming together of those who believe in God as in God fearing people who wish to support the only free and prosperous country in the middle east. The greatest fear of the liberals in America is a strong and free Israel in the middle east who love and promote freedom and free enterprise without big government.

  • WE SHARE THE SAME BOOK. IT DOESNT MATTER WHETHER THE OLD OR NEW COVENANT, WE ARE UNDER THE SAME BELIEVE IN THE GOD OF ABRAHAM. IF IT WERE NOT SO, ME AND MY HUSBAND WOULD NOT BE MAKING OUR YEARLY PILGRIM TO THE HOLY LAND OF ISRAEL, BUT BECAUSE OF THE COMMON BOND THAT WE HAVE, WE AS CHRISTIANS YEARLY PAY HOMAGE TO JERUSALEM. Am glad am a lover of Israel and ready to die for that land.
