JNS.org – A delegation of 30 young evangelical pastors traveled to Israel earlier this month on their first visit to the Jewish state. Rabbi Pini Dunner, senior rabbi at California’s Young Israel of North Beverly Hills, accompanied the group in an expression of Jewish solidarity with evangelical Christians.

“The overwhelming miracle of Christian-Jewish brotherhood in the wake of the creation of the state of Israel is something that is under-recognized and under-appreciated, particularly of evangelicals, whose love for Israel is breathtaking and illuminating,” Dunner said.

The rabbi elaborated in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), saying, “The more that Jews realize that they have brothers and friends in the evangelical world…the greater the chances for the success of the state of Israel.”

Christian Aranza, a delegation member and pastor from Alabama’s Church of the Highlands, conveyed similar sentiments on Christian-Jewish camaraderie.

The delegation of millennial-aged pastors toured Israel as part of an initiative organized by Eagles’ Wings, a ministry based outside of Buffalo, NY.
