JNS.orgEstonia and Latvia this week became the 29th and 30th countries to form a Christian-Israel Allies Caucus in their governments.

Organized with the help of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, the new caucuses will work closely with the Israeli Knesset’s Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC).

At a ceremony that launched the caucus in Tallinn, Estonia’s capital, a delegation from those groups met with high-ranking Estonian politicians and church leaders, WJC said.
