Christian ‘Night to Honor Israel’ evokes positive response from community
Christians United for Israel held a “Night to Honor Israel” on the University of Arizona campus on April 14, featuring radio talk-show host, lecturer and author Dennis Prager. More than 300 local Christians together with members of the Jewish community filled the south ballroom of the student union.
The four-month-old UA CUFI on Campus chapter partnered with Congregation Anshei Israel, the University of Arizona Hillel Foundation, Faith Community Church East and Ironwood Hills Church to honor Israel. Nationallly, CUFI on Campus aims to develop student leaders “to educate Christians, raise awareness on their campus and mobilize students toward specific action based activities on the Biblical and moral reasons to support Israel,” according to a fact sheet about the group.
Journalist probes personal/political identity
Just as Tucson Hebrew Academy strives for balance in promoting Jewish identity and understanding of a pluralistic world, so does Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent at the Atlantic and keynote speaker at THA’s annual Tikkun Olam, or “Helping Our Children Repair the World,” event on April 11 at The Westin La Paloma, honoring Larry and Kristen Gellman.
There’s a “conflict in the soul, or heart, of many American Jews, a pull of the universal and the particularistic,” said Goldberg, a journalist whose work has also appeared in the New York Times and New Yorker.
