As the Progressive National Baptist Convention (PNBC) tour continues in Israel, Michael Seiler - a staff member from our Jerusalem office - tells us about the many different people and places the group had the opportunity to visit.
Today was a full and inspiring day for the members of the PNBC tour.
The day began with a surprise meeting between Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. The surprise was well received by the tour participants, and Blair was able to answer many questions.
The group continued to the Fellowship-supported Ethiopian spiritual center for a short visit. During this time they learned about the lifesaving support The Fellowship brings to the Ethiopian community.
Then, Yael Eckstein met with the group at the ancient Roman theater in Caesarea.
The day continued with a visit to the Muhraqa Carmelite Monastery - which is the famous site of the sacrifice of Elijah the Prophet.
The next stop was Mount Precipice, which is believed to be the site of the Rejection of Jesus.
The day ended with a visit to the Fellowship's Yemin Orde Pre-Army Leadership Program for Girls where Dr. Chaim Peri greeted the group.
