Christians United For Israel (CUFI) founder Pastor John Hagee is set to be honored by major Jewish organizations for his years of staunch support and humanitarian endeavors on behalf of Israel.
Thursday’s dinner will be attended by the heads of several major Jewish and Israeli organizations, including the head of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. The dinner will raise money for Meir Panim, which works to fight hunger in Israel. Hagee has donated more than $80 million to Israeli charities.
On the eve of his dinner, Hagee said he hopes future leaders will continue to fight for Israel.
“I hope that the next generation [of CUFI advocates] will rise up to be aggressive and intelligent leaders that will continue its work until all the enemies of Israel are defeated,” Hagee said in an interview with JNS.
