JERUSALEM - During the week of Sukkot, thousands of Christians from around the world flew to Israel’s capital to express solidarity with the Jewish state and to attend annual events in support of Israel, including the Feast of Tabernacles sponsored by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem and the International Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.
Among them was Rev. Rosemary Schindler, great-niece of late industrialist Oskar Schindler, famous for having saved more than 1,100 Jews during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories.
Rev. Schindler is director of Christians United for Israel for the city of San Francisco and founder of Schindler’s Ark, which according to its website “stands as a bridge of support between Christians, Jews, the USA, the nations and Israel.”
Rev. Schindler is committed to continuing the Schindler legacy by speaking out against antisemitism.
Last Wednesday evening, she took some time away from the larger events to attend an information program organized by Regavim, a Zionist NGO that has launched an “emergency campaign to save the Negev” from Bedouin land theft – an issue which they claim threatens the future of the Jewish state.
