Knesset members from across the political spectrum and government leaders will join both Jews and Christians at the Inbal Hotel in Jerusalem for a reception in honor of Christians who have been steadfast in their commitment to Israel.
This year, organizers have chosen to award Bishop Daniel Williams, founding bishop-primate of the Christian Communion International and former chairman of Teen Mania, in recognition of his activities on behalf of Israel.
The caucus, together with the Ministry for Tourism, will also honor Juergen Buehler, executive director of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, for his contribution to Israeli tourism.
Caucus Chairman Knesset Member David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu) will address guests on the importance of developing Judeo-Christian relations based on the two religions’ mutual values, as will fellow Caucus members and the chairman of the World Jewish Congress Israel, MK Shai Hermesh (Kadima).
Other speakers include Deputy Minister Ayoob Kara (Likud), WJC Secretary-General Dan Diker, KCAC director Josh Reinstein, Bridges for Peace President Rebecca Brimmer and Dr. Naim Khoury Pastor of First Baptist Bethlehem.
The KCAC is a multi-partisan caucus comprised of seventeen Knesset members. Established in 2004 by the late Dr. Yuri Shtern, it is today chaired by MK Rotem.
The caucus aims to forge direct lines of communication between Knesset members and Christian leaders, organizations and political representatives in Israel and throughout the world.
The World Jewish Congress is the international organization representing Jewish communities in nearly 100 countries to governments, parliaments and international organizations.
