The Evangelical Victory Assembly God Church, which was
the victim of recent anti-Semitic graffiti, will host the religious leaders as
part of a United Jerusalem Day celebration to honor Israel, commemorate
Jerusalem’s reunification in 1967, and raise funds for Jerusalem’s ALYN
ALYN is a private, non-profit and non-sectarian facility,
and the only facility in Israel which specializes in diagnosis and the
rehabilitation of infants, children and adolescents who are suffering from
physical disabilities, both congenital and acquired, according to its website.
“This day is going to be a bench mark for New England, I
pray that every year we will have a celebration where Jews and Christians can
come together and support the nation of Israel,” Pastor Joe Green of the Victory
Assembly God Church said in a statement.
The event is expected to draw more than 500 people. Dr. Pat
Robertson will deliver the keynote address, and Shai Bazak, Consul-General of
Israel to New England,
is also scheduled to speak.
