ICEJ Hosts Russian Pastors on Solidarity Mission to Israel

Nine bishops and pastors from Evangelical churches across Russia paid a visit to Israel in March on a solidarity mission organized by the Christian Embassy. During their visit, they toured the Knesset and met with Knesset member Tatiana Mazarsky, received security briefings, visited the devastated Kibbutz Be’eri near the Gaza border, toured a parking lot with hundreds of burned-out Israeli cars from the Hamas massacres of October 7, and heard first-hand accounts of the atrocities of that dark day from local Israelis. The Russian church leaders gained deeper insight into the heinous crimes Hamas committed and saw the trail of devastation they caused on that fatal Shabbat. The leaders left Israel better equipped with truth and knowledge to lead their Christian communities in Russia in standing with Israel during this crucial time.
