I held my first Stand with Israel Sunday on Oct 21 at Bethany Assembly of God in Hillside, NJ. This was their first CUFI event. The pastor, Aly Kahn Armaneto, attended the DC Summit in 2016. There were 90 people in attendance, with an unusual amount of professional young adults. The response from the congregation was very supportive of Israel. After my presentation, the pastor announced to the congregation that their church will begin financially supporting CUFI on a monthly basis, as they already support The Friends of the IDF. The pastor has agreed to work with me in promoting the bus trip from NJ to the 2019 DC Summit.
