Israel and Jews have many South African admirers

  • Letter1
In your editorial “Friends where you didn’t know you had any” (14 December 2018), you highlighted the incident of an Afrikaans lady who was so excited to meet “G-d’s chosen people”. It was through her and her husband’s church involvement that they had found their “love for Israel and the Jewish people”.

Thank you for highlighting the fact that the Jewish people and Israel have admirers. In fact, there are many thousands right here in South Africa, as well as in many countries worldwide, whose genuine love for Israel and the Jewish people leads them to sacrifice much to help Israel.

Many work with Rev Kenneth Meshoe and his wife, Dr Lydia Meshoe, who you mention in your editorial, to spread their love and admiration. It is deeply moving to attend their annual tribute to Israel, in which hundreds of Israel admirers converge at a huge church in Boksburg to share their joy, and pray for Israel and the Jewish people.

Other organisations, like Bridges for Peace, Ebenezer, and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, collect funds worldwide to alleviate poverty and improve Israeli lives. These and others are comprised of thousands upon thousands of Christian Zionists, whose genuine love for all things Jewish uplifts my soul. It gives me hope that, with their ongoing enthusiastic enlightenment, peace will come to Israel and the world.
