This May, as the modern state of Israel celebrates its 70th anniversary, American Christian Leaders for Israel will host the Israel: Seventy & Strong Summit in Washington, D.C., to send a message both to Washington and abroad that Christians will stand with Israel in unity and strength now and for years to come.
The event will take place May 13-15, which coincides with the date of Israel’s anniversary and the planned date of the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem. According to organizers, the summit will celebrate the past, evaluate the present, and create strategies for future generations of Christians to stand alongside Israel in her next seventy years.
“This is not just a summit but a catalytic gathering,” said Susan Michael, U.S. Director of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, of which ACLI is a project.
“We aspire to go beyond the same old conference gathering to forge new and lasting relationships that will ignite collaborative partnerships and empower leaders,” she added in a letter to Christian leaders. “This international, cross-generational gathering will demonstrate that Christian support for Israel is global, strong, and positioned for the future.”
The summit will begin with a Gala dinner on Sunday night, May 13, at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. The summit will continue with sessions on topics concerning modern Israel and her Christian friends on Monday, May 14, at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. The festivities will culminate with a Jerusalem Day celebration on Capitol Hill in partnership with the Israel Allies Caucus on Tuesday, May 15.
Speakers include Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, president & CEO of NRB; Reuven Azar, deputy chief of Mission Embassy of Israel; Gordon Robertson, CEO of Christian Broadcasting Network; Dr. Jim Showers, president of Friends of Israel; Daniel Williams, executive director of Israel Allies Foundation; Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council; Gary Bauer, director of CUFI Action Fund; Star Parker, president of Urban CURE; and more.
