CUFI in Action
Your donations enabled us to send 35 campus student leaders to Israel to kick off their CUFI on Campus year-long Bonhoeffer Fellowship.

Dear friend,

Israel’s enemies are aggressively challenging the Jewish state's right to exist, and no place more than on our college campuses. 


It is our responsibility to proactively teach the truth about Israel to tomorrow's leaders.  And we are doing that through CUFI on Campus and an exciting new fellowship for our most distinguished student leaders: The Bonhoeffer Fellowship.

This program is inspired by the life of the Christian hero, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who bravely stood against Hitler’s vile ideology. Bonhoeffer chose to put his Christian faith to action by speaking out and fighting for truth. Under our new Bonhoeffer Fellowship program, 35 of CUFI's most promising pro-Israel student activists will participate in an intensive year-long discipleship program based on Bonhoeffer's principles of faith, courage, and moral clarity. These students will dedicate themselves to studying Christian leadership, the Arab-Israeli conflict and becoming experts in the pro-Israel field.

We kicked off the year-long Bonhoeffer Fellowship with an exclusive trip to Israel that introduced these students to Knesset members, journalists, military and security experts, as well as leaders of the Christian communities in Israel. This trip included a special focus on spiritual strength and putting faith into action. These students have committed to dedicating the next year to being modern-day Bonhoeffers. 


Many of these students will return to campus to face anti-Israel activists. Bombs and terror attacks have not destroyed or even weakened Israel.  So Israel’s enemies have launched a coordinated effort to use boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) to hurt Israel economically and isolate the Jewish State diplomatically. The BDS movement spreads lies about Israel and believes that they can get away with it.


This is where we come in. We have a policy at CUFI -- no public lie about Israel will go unanswered.   In particular, any time the Israel haters pay for billboards or bus ads to attack the Jewish state, we pay for billboards and bus ads praising the Jewish state.  We place these ads in the same city, in the same venue.  And we place more ads than the anti-Israel crowd did. 

For example, a BDS group in San Francisco recently plastered public busses with the slogan, “Boycott Israel Until Palestinians Have Equal Rights.”  CUFI responded immediately.  Dipping into a war chest that exists for just this purpose, we ran ads on San Francisco's buses thanking Israel for providing safety to religious minorities and for standing up to terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.  And we ran these ads on even more buses than the anti-Israel ads. 


Christians United for Israel is committed to fighting for the truth and supporting Israel for the long haul, and we know that you are too. Only with your help can we keep our war chest full and continue sowing a love for Israel into the hearts of the next generation.   We hope you will continue to enable us to meet these urgent challenges. 

Blessings to you and those you love,

Pastor John Hagee,
Nation Chairman

David Brog,
Director

Your donations enabled us to place pro-Israel ads on 16 buses in San Francisco.

The Israel Pledge

We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right.

We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.

We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors.
