This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of Israel’s shocking and decisive victory in the Six-Day War of 1967, in which the Jewish state defeated Egypt, Jordan, and Syria, while retaking the West Bank and the Old City of Jerusalem.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • After expressing serious intent in moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Donald Trump has decided to hold off on the move for now.
  • A teenage Palestinian terrorist stabbed an IDF soldier in the West Bank.
  • Thanks to the support of The Fellowship’s donors around the world, IDF battalions are receiving the support they need.
  • American political leaders – including Senator Chuck Schumer and Ambassador Nikki Haley – have called out the United Nations for its anti-Israel bias.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Yonit Rothchild on facing change with faith in God and the plans He has for us.
