(Worthy News) - Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Aryeh Stern says that he has received guarantees from the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem that there would be no missionary activity at the organization’s Feast of Tabernacles celebration, which starts next week.
Stern’s office has been in touch with ICEJ in order to seek this clarification, after several anti-missionary groups objected to the organization’s forthcoming event, and Stern wrote to one of these groups explaining his position on the issue.
“We have spoken with those who are responsible for the conference and agreed with them that the event this year will not be a repeat of last year. Even though there was no clear missionary activity, it nevertheless caused great resentment among Jews,” Stern wrote to the Yad L’achim organization.
The ICEJ is a well-established evangelical Christian Zionist organization, explicitly pro-Israel. [ Source ]
