Forty Pro-Israel Christian Students of the Robert Stearns’ Third Annual Israel Experience College Scholarship Program Attend Meeting
Wednesday, June 14, 2006 - The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) held its monthly meeting today on Wednesday, June 14, 2006, from 5:00-6:30 PM, in the Knesset Lecture Hall.
In its monthly meeting, the KCAC discussed Judeo-Christian medical ethics and opened a dialogue between Jews and Christians in order to learn more about the tenets of their faith. Speaking on this topic was MK Rabbi Benyamin Elon; MK Elhanan Glazer; Robert Berman, the founder and director of the Halachic Organ Donor Society and Judith Nusbaum, a recent recipient of a kidney transplant. “Saving lives and organ donation can unite us. I extend my hand to any faith,” said Mr. Berman, urging all at the meeting to become organ donors regardless of religion.” Malcolm Hedding, Executive Director of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, speaking on the subject of Judeo-Christian medical ethics, said, “Jews and Christians can certainly converge and make a difference in the world and this is after all why the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus exists.”
The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus also hosted the third annual Israel Experience College Scholarship Program established by Robert Stearns’ Eagles’ Wings. These student activists from the United States took a VIP tour of the Knesset and joined MK Gilad Erdan and MK Amira Dotan to learn about the Knesset and Israel’s political system. Now that they have completed this program, these young men and women will return to their college campuses to advocate on behalf of Israel. “We would like to express our appreciation for taking time to invest in us. We will go back and be representatives of the dream that is Israel,” said a representative of the Israel Experience Program.
