Please join us in prayer and fasting until 21st April for Israel and for an end to the terror attacks that have taken place recently in busy locations across the land. On 22nd March, 4 people were killed in a shooting outside a mall in Beer Sheva, on 27th March, 2 people were killed in a shooting in Hadera, on 29th March, 5 people were killed in Bnei Barak (including the first policeman on the scene, an Arab Christian from Nof HaGalil – see below), on 7th April, 3 people were killed in a busy street in Tel Aviv. Our hearts are broken for the loss of so many precious lives over the past few weeks.
A Hero from Nof HaGalil.
HOPE’s new premises is in Nof HaGalil, a residential area just outside of Nazareth where Arabs and Jews live together. Amir Khoury (30), a Christian Arab was the first policeman on the scene in Bnei Brak on 29th March. He killed the terrorist but also lost his own life. Bnei Brak is an Ultra Orthodox (Haredi) town near Tel Aviv. Thousands of Israelis (religious and secular, Jews and Arabs) came to Amir’s funeral.
