Christians United for Israel sold out the 2,500-seat RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus at $20 a ticket for its Night to Honor Israel on Tuesday night, March 29.

The keynote speaker was televangelist David Jeremiah, the senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, who made the biblical case for Israel to exist and have American support. Pastor Jay Bailey of Solid Rock Church in Midland, the regional director of CUFI, served as the host of the event.

Congregation Etz Chaim Rabbi Shalom Lewis delivered an updated version of his speech warning of the advance of Muslim extremism. That speech, which gained notoriety through misrepresentation after he first presented it at Rosh Hashanah in 2014, has only gained strength with examples such as the terrorist attacks on Paris in January and November 2015 and the recent bombings Brussels.

Christian Zionists were set to gather again at CUFI’s Eastern Regional Stand With Israel Forum on Thursday, April 21, at the Church at Chapelhill in Douglasville.
