Historic events to celebrate 50 years reunification of Jerusalem

Hundreds of Christian leaders from 56 countries and Israeli leaders celebrate and pray together for the Peace of Jerusalem at the 1st Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast.

“We are writing a new chapter in the fulfilment of of Isaiah’s prophecies. You are a part of this chapter” (Yehuda Glick, Rabbi and Knesset Member)

Exactly 50 years after the reunification of Jerusalem, between 6-8 June, the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast as well as other related side events took place in Jerusalem. I had the honor to be involved in these events as one of the Founders of the Movement of the Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast and also on behalf of the ECPM. The events consisted of an opening meeting in the Israeli Parliament (the Knesset), a reception at the residence of the President of Israel, a lunch for Members of (European) Parliament organized by the ECPM in collaboration with the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus (KCAC) and the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF), a concert with (Jewish) Psalms and Christian worship, the Prayer Breakfast and the Closing Dinner. The last day, an excursion was organized to visit a future project in the pioneers’ city of Arad.
