One Million New Members In Less Than Ten Months
December 11, 2018 Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, announced that the group has surpassed the five million member mark, less than ten months after announcing it had added 4 million members.
“CUFI’s growth is a direct result of the widespread support Israel enjoys among the tens of millions of Evangelicals in America,” CUFI Founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee said. “With God’s blessing, and the hard work of our lean but dedicated staff, we have been able to reach one million new members just in the past 10 months.”
“It’s clear our mission is resonating with Americans all across the country who share our commitment to defend Israel,” CUFI Executive Director Shari Dollinger said. “Not only is the size of our organization growing, our ability to make a difference is growing as well. Fueled by our members’ strong conviction and devotion, CUFI has been successful in driving consequential policy changes, momentum going to further strengthen our nation’s deep bond with Israel.”
Reflecting on what lies ahead, Pastor Hagee added: “We have made tremendous progress, but there is still much work to be done. We will continue to focus on strengthening the US-Israel relationship and contending with the threats posed by Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and other terrorist organizations, as well as fighting anti-Semitism here and around the world.”
Christians United For Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its message. Each year CUFI holds hundreds of pro-Israel events in cities around the country. And each July, thousands of pro-Israel Christians gather in Washington, D.C. to participate in the CUFI Washington Summit and make their voices heard in support of Israel and the Jewish people.
