Prominent Christian and Jewish leaders, including well-known Christian pastor and
television personality Dr. Pat Robertson, are scheduled to host a fundraiser for
an Israeli hospital in the Boston suburb of Sharon on May 19.
The Evangelical Victory Assembly God Church, which was the victim of recent anti-Semitic graffiti, will host the religious leaders as part of a United Jerusalem Day celebration to honor Israel, commemorate Jerusalem’s reunification in 1967, and raise funds for Jerusalem’s ALYN Hospital.
ALYN is a private, non-profit and non-sectarian facility, and the only facility in Israel that specializes in diagnosis and the rehabilitation of infants, children and adolescents who are suffering from physical disabilities, both congenital and acquired, according to its website.
“This day is going to be a bench mark for New England, I pray that every year we will have a celebration where Jews and Christians can come together and support the nation of Israel,” Pastor Joe Green of the Victory Assembly God Church said in a statement.
The event is expected to draw more than 500 people. Dr. Pat Robertson will deliver the keynote address, and Shai Bazak, Consul-General of Israel to New England, is also scheduled to speak.
