“Our goal for the program was to reach ambassadors of predominantly Christian nations and to help them understand anti-Semitism and how to deal with it,” said Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of PJTN, a nonprofit that seeks to educate Christians about the biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel.

Under her leadership, the group was recently behind an effort to get the Tennessee General Assembly to became the first state legislature in the United States to condemn the BDS movement against Israel. PJTN has undertaken a national campaign to get legislatures in all 50 U.S. states to oppose BDS formally; at least three other state legislative bodies have since followed Tennessee’s lead.
