We recently had the privilege of being part of Cape Breton’s first To Israel With Love Event hosted by Pastors William and Rosette Legge of The Gathering Church in Sydney, NS.   The event featured video greetings from Israeli Consul General Galit Behrain who spoke about the importance of unity between Christians and Jews and also expressed great thanks to everyone attending.  Joseph Gitler the founder of Israel’s National food bank Leket Israel told of the need to help feed israel’s poor and he also expressed gratitude to all who were in attendance.   Also addressing the event was Deputy Chief of Police of Sydney, NS, Robert Walsh who expressed good will and hope for both communities. All proceeds of the event went to Leket Israel.

Barrie Carnat welcomed the Jewish Community to the event.    Holocaust Survivor, Israel Unger gave a very moving testimony about his survival during the Nazi invasion of Poland.   You could hear a pin drop as his story captivated us all and brought tears to many.

Please consider joining us in blessing Israel by hosting an event for Leket Israel in your community.
