In a gesture of solidarity, evangelical Christians from the United States have donated $8.5 million (or approximately 34 million shekels) to help encourage Jews to commit Aliyah (or emigrate) towards Israel.
(Israel National News) An evangelical Christian group led by Rev. John Hagee raised $8.5 million for Israeli causes at a fundraising event earlier this week. Six million dollars will be donated to groups that encourage Jews to make aliyah (immigrate) to Israel, while the rest will be donated to a variety of other causes, including funds to support Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria.
Hagee is the founder and national chairman of the Christians United for Israel group, which is an organization seeking to promote Israel politically, financially and spiritually. They are one of the largest political grass roots organizations in the US, and perhaps one of the most influential as well.
This donation will help to send a strong signal to those eager to divide Jerusalem, something Hagee sees as "very unkosher."
