The EAL Spring 2024 Gathering in Jerusalem from Monday, April 29th until Friday, May 3rd will expose the participants to the most important challenges and solutions for present-day Israel and the Middle East.
But the underlying objectives are to speak comfort to Israel (Isaiah 40:1); to speak peace for Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6); to bring blessing to the war-torn nation; to learn and serve; and to let the Lord speak to us about Israel, the Church, and the world.
We have already been able to set up an unprecedented program that will impact the rest of our lives!
Some of the foremost apostles and prophets from Israel, Europe, and beyond will minister.
We will have a strong emphasis on worship and prayer.
We want to keep our program as flexible as possible. We have endless relationships and opportunities.
Some of the leaders of Israeli politics, military, law and society will speak and interact with us.
In the opening session, Jerusalem´s Deputy Mayor, Mrs. Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, will speak about her vision for post-war Jerusalem; her role as Israel´s Special Envoy for Innovation; and her mandate as the co-founder of the Israel-United Arab Emirates Business Council.In The Knesset (photo credits: EAL)
We will have a panel conversation between Jerzy Kwasniewski (President of Ordo Iuris Legal Institute in Warsaw) and Dr. Eugene Kontorovich (Professor at Kohelet Policy Forum in Jerusalem; Law Professor at George Mason University in Washington DC). The focus will be on the battle in Israel and Europe for conservative values, esp regarding faith, family and law. Jerzy is one of Europe´s 25 most significant leaders, according to Politico Europe. Eugene is one of the master-minds behind the judicial reforms in Israel.
We will be hosted in the Knesset by Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC), directed by Dr. Josh Reinstein, and co-chaired by MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud) and MK Sharren Haskel (National Unity). We will interact with several Members of the Knesset.Maurice Hirsch (screenshot)
Another of our Israeli expert speakers is Professor Dr. Maurice Hirsch, who is the director for the Initiative for Palestinian Authority Accountability and Reform at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.
We will definitely have a session with families of the October 7 hostages, and/or the liberated hostages themselves.
We will have high-level government ministers with us, as well as a brigadier general of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
Everyone who wants to participate at the EAL Jerusalem Spring 2024 Gathering needs to have an official invitation letter from the EAL office in Oslo.
EAL Members who have paid their annual dues for the last 12 month period are exempt from paying the entry fee. The spouse is also exempt.
We intend to keep the Jerusalem Gathering small and relational, so: First come, first served.
It is with great anticipation and faith that we convene in Jerusalem for four pivotal days for Israel, Europe and the nations.
