Because of the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Bridge blog is suspending activity through January 21. We’ll be back on Tuesday, January 22, with more updates from the Holy Land.

On January 21, we also remember Dr. King as a man who saw a clear parallel between the struggle for equality faced by his own people and the Jewish people’s struggle against oppression.

Learn more about the historic link between African Americans and the Jewish community dating back to the Civil Rights Movement in our free downloadable booklet, On the Frontlines of Faith.
