November 17–19, 2023
Weekend of Prayer
Jewish and Christian community leaders are forming a historic prayer partnership over the weekend of November 17–19 when congregations across the United States and around the world will cry out to God on behalf of Israel and the release of more than 240 hostages still being held by Hamas.
Don’t miss this unprecedented moment in history to stand with and for our Jewish friends in prayer. Commit your congregation to a time of prayer for Israel and the release of the hostages according to Isaiah 62:1: “For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace.”
During your regularly scheduled services over the weekend of November 17–19, lead a time of prayer for Israel and the release of the hostages still held captive by Hamas. Every Sabbath in synagogues, Jews pray a “Prayer for Israel”—and on this weekend, they will do so knowing that churches are joining them with prayer during their own services.
As a pastor or Christian leader, phone your local synagogue and let them know you and your church are praying for Israel and the release of the hostages that weekend.
Search out opportunities to stand with your local Jewish community at rallies or vigils and on social media. We cannot hold our peace or be silent at this time!
