Chief Rabbis attack pro-Israel ICEJ Christian group accusing it of proselytizing

Chief Rabbis David Lau and Yitzhak Yosef issued a strongly worded attack against the pro-Israel Christian group The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, accusing it of seeking to convert Jews to Christianity and warning Israelis not to attend the ICEJ’s annual conference during the upcoming Succot holiday.

ICEJ, which belongs to the evangelical denomination of Christianity, is extremely pro-Israel and has provided funds for many charitable projects in the country. It always has insisted that it does not engage in any missionary activity at all.

In their open letter, the chief rabbis accused ICEJ of seeking to convert Jews to Christianity and said Christian “elements” undertaking “missionary [activities] on behalf of the International Christian Embassy,” were responsible for organizing the conference.
