The wave of anti-Semitic attacks continued this week as Jewish Community Centers in the U.S. and Canada responded to more bomb threats. In addition, Anti-Defamation League offices in New York, Atlanta, Boston, and Washington, D.C., were targeted. In response, a letter signed by all 100 U.S. senators was sent to the White House calling for “swift action” to stop these threats.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Israeli security forces killed a Palestinian terrorist planning new attacks in Israel during a shootout in the West Bank.
  • Just weeks after President Donald Trump hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, the two leaders shared a brief phone conversation to discuss rising aggression from Iran.
  • The Fellowship’s Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein addressed The Knesset, thanking Christians in the U.S. for standing with the Jewish people and Israel as anti-Semitism is on the rise globally.
  • Israel’s national baseball team in its first appearance ever in the World Baseball Classic advanced to the tournament’s quarterfinals.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Yonit Rothchild on the message found in the Jewish celebration of Purim, which begins this weekend.
