International Coalition for Israel
– prayer, education and advocacy for Israel.
The campaign aims to keep alive the memory of the victims of the Holocaust, while raising awareness of the resurgence of antisemitism today. ICI and ECI are calling on local churches worldwide to adopt the IHRA definition on antisemitism as an expression of their commitment to stand against antisemitism. To signal willingness of your church to join this campaign, please sign up here. Click here to read more.
How can we fight back?
As a Christian initiative, ICI believes in the power of prayer but also in the need to take concrete action through education and advocacy. Like social reformers of the past, from William Wilberforce to Henri Dunant, ICI believes in the restoration of Israel as the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people but also in celebrating Jewish life and culture in our own nations and showing appreciation for the Jews’ unique contribution across many fields of endeavour.
Through our international staff we are active in many of the world’s capitals, where we contend for a greater appreciation of Jewish life and culture, and call for greater respect for the Jewish people and their customs and belief. It has been our witness that education and advocacy of this kind helps build a forum for cultural engagement and diplomacy which offers the most effective antidote to anti-Semitism.
