In a world sadly lacking in moral leadership, CUFI has taken a bold stand. We've never watered down our message or compromised our principles. And we've sometimes paid a price for this. When you criticize the president, you 're not always welcome in the White House.
But it's a new day in Washington, and a new opportunity for CUFI. At the beginning of April, we met with President Trump and Vice President Pence at the White House.
There are thousands of pastors in America who care about Israel and even pray for the peace of Jerusalem. But most of these pastors never step up and take action in support of Israel. Pastors are busy people, and they typically have more immediate concerns closer to home. It is difficult to add Israel to their agenda.
Continually Fighting Anti-Semitism and Anti-Israel Propaganda
Christians United for Israel is poised for our most exciting and effective season yet, and we are so thankful to have you standing with us as we embark on the next phase of our journey. For ten years, CUFI has been preparing, establishing key relationships, building the right team, and laying the groundwork for what we finally have the opportunity to do. The last decade was amazing, but we believe we have only just arrived at the beginning of God’s divine purpose for us.
President Trump has nominated David Friedman to serve as the next US ambassador to the Jewish State. Friedman has had a distinguished career, is extremely well respected, and has had a lifelong commitment to Israel. Yet certain groups are opposing Friedman's nomination because they believe his views on Israel are too conservative.
Our response to the Obama Administration's betrayal of Israel
We promised you that Christians United for Israel would hit the ground running in 2017. So far, we're keeping our word.
As you know, in late December the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution singling out Israel for condemnation and declaring that much of Jerusalem is occupied Palestinian land.
We are doing more than ever to overcome the lies and misunderstandings that Israel's enemies use to attack the Jewish state
There is an evil lie circulating in America and around the world — the lie that Israel is a racist, apartheid state like South Africa used to be. This apartheid myth fuels the BDS movement to boycott Israel, and we are using every available tool to destroy that myth and expose people to the diversity and freedom that characterizes Israel.
Your donations enabled us to send 35 campus student leaders to Israel to kick off their CUFI on Campus year-long Bonhoeffer Fellowship.
Israel’s enemies are aggressively challenging the Jewish state's right to exist, and no place more than on our college campuses.
Thanks to you and millions of other Christians who have answered the call to stand up for Israel, we're entering our eleventh year stronger than we've ever been. And thanks to supporters like you we've been able to rise to the challenge of making the case for Israel in a rapidly changing media environment.
Last month, we held our 11th annual Washington Summit. What a powerful event this was. For a full day we were educated about Israel by some of the best in the business. At our National Night to Honor Israel, we were motivated by captivating speeches and inspirational music. The next day, thousands of us descended upon Capital Hill to proudly tell our leaders that we expect them to stand with Israel.
Exciting things are happening across the country as Christians United for Israel continues to experience rapid growth, and we owe our success to faithful supporters like you who have given so much to bless Israel. Thank you for standing with us as we stand with Israel. Your commitment, prayers, and financial support have enabled us to become the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization and help shape the conversation about Israel in churches, college campuses, the media, and the political arena.
This past month was another month of heartbreak for Israel and those who love her. On June 30th, a Palestinian terrorist murdered 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel in her bed as she lay sleeping.
The very next day, terrorists fired on a car driven by Rabbi Michael Mark. While his wife two of his children survived this attack, Rabbi Mark did not. This father of ten children was laid to rest the very next morning.
Don't believe what you read in the papers. Yes -- Israel's enemies are growing larger and bolder. Yes, they are making progress in their effort to delegitimize the Jewish state. But, we who love Israel are rising to this challenge!
CUFI's membership is growing! This month, we were proud to announce that we now have over three million members. This makes us not only the largest pro-Israel organization in the country, but among the largest grassroots organizations in the world.
Millennials and college students are the key to the future of the U.S.-Israel relationship. Yet their support for Israel can no longer be taken for granted. Anti-Israel activists backed by significant funds are hard at work trying to convince our young people that Israel is the real threat to humanity in the Middle East. Believe it or not, these efforts are working.
As the largest pro-Israel organization in the country, it is our responsibility to wage a long-term battle for the hearts and minds of the rising generation.
On the heels of our 10th anniversary, we are moving forward in very big ways. Your support has enabled us to blaze an ambitious path with a dedicated team in the field capable of keeping up a dizzying pace.
We are thrilled to make a huge announcement: America’s largest pro-Israel organization is joining forces with the world’s largest Christian television network. On February 25, 2016, TBN launched “The Watchman,” a 30-minute, weekly program hosted by CUFI’s Erick Stakelbeck.
Two weeks ago marked a pivotal milestone for Christians United for Israel -- we celebrated our 10TH ANNIVERSARY.
Our hearts are filled with gratitude as we look back over how far we've come in 10 short years. Our membership has grown from a few hundred to over 2.8 million. Our events calendar has filled up from one or two a month to over 30 a month. And our influence has grown from "What is CUFI?" to "When will you let me speak at a CUFI event?"
As we edge closer to the 10th anniversary of CUFI’s founding, the significant work we’ve been blessed to do along with you is more critical than ever.
Over the last decade because of your support we have become the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S., with over 2.5 million members and 1.2 million Facebook fans. We have educated millions of American Christians about the biblical and moral imperative to support Israel. We equipped millions of American Christians to defend Israel in their churches, communities, online, and our nation’s capital. We have transformed tens of thousands of churches and communities into pro-Israel churches and communities by holding thousands of pro-Israel events in cities across America. .
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.
