Bridges For Peace: Christians supporting Israel and building relationships

between Christians and Jews in Israel and around the world

Covenant: The True Foundation

By Rev. Cheryl L. Hauer, Vice President

It is impossible to know how many pages have been written, words spoken and questions asked in man’s search for a true understanding of personal relationship with God. Belief is the central element, some have said, without which no relationship can exist. Others have posited that obedience is the essential component without which belief is rendered valueless. Still others have stressed the difference between belief and faith. Faith, they have determined, is the fundamental factor, turning to Hebrews 11:6 for confirmation. “Without faith” the Scripture says, “it is impossible to please Him.” But I believe we have to dig a little deeper, going a step beyond faith alone to find the foundation upon which true faith is built. I think we’ll find that foundation is covenant.    Continue reading…

Coming Home to the Jewish Quarter

By Ilse Strauss, Assistant Editor

At the tender age of 18, Esther Weiss prayed a strange prayer. The year was 1968. Months earlier, Israel had liberated the Old City of Jerusalem from Jordanian rule. The divided city was newly reunited. The Jewish people had just regained access to their holy sites and could finally return to the decimated Jewish Quarter. Esther stood amid a deserted landscape of rubble in the bombed-out crater of the Tiferet Yisrael Synagogue—once the center of worship in the Jewish Quarter—when the longing of her heart overflowed. “God,” she whispered. “I want to live here.”   Continue reading…

To our friends in the Jewish Community – in Pittsburgh, around the United States, and around the world…

Jeremiah 23:9  My heart within me is broken, all my bones shake. (JPS)

We are broken-hearted with you. There are no adequate words. You do not stand alone. Bible-believing Christians, and Bridges for Peace friends in specific know that this evil man has touched the apple of God’s eye.  We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.

Psalm 147:3,6  Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. The LORD upholdeth the humble; He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. (JPS)

To our fellow Bible-believing Christians, and to the Bridges for Peace family in specific.  Now more than ever, standing with the Jewish people is standing with God. Pure evil has acted and claimed to act as a Christian.  This is a shame for all of us who truly follow the Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth.  Join us in sending a message of love, support, and unity to the Jewish Community.  Reach out in love and compassion. Prayer is our most important action now. Personally reaching out to your Jewish friends and neighbors to just say “you are not alone, and you do not mourn alone,” is second.

If you feel God’s call to send a donation of sympathy, you may send it to Bridges for Peace USA – noted as “Pittsburgh gift.”

Jim Solberg, National Director, on behalf of all the Bridges for Peace USA family

We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.
