CUFI To Host Emergency Fly-In Next Week

Hagee: “Christians across America see what is happening in Congress and we are disgusted with the lack of action.”

WASHINGTON – On Monday, 250 ministry and community leaders will gather in Washington for an emergency fly-in organized by Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization. This is just the third fly-in organized by the group since CUFI’s founding more than 18 years ago. 

The gathering will begin with dinner featuring several speakers including Members of Congress, former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee. The following day, the diverse group of Christian leaders from around the country will meet with their representatives on Capitol Hill to express support for the House to advance bipartisan emergency supplemental aid to Israel without delay. 

“Christians across America see what is happening in Congress and we are disgusted with the lack of action. It has been six months since Hamas’s brutal invasion of Israel and Congress has yet to advance emergency aid to the Jewish state. Congressional gridlock is harming Israel’s ability to defend itself and emboldening Israel’s adversaries,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee. 

While CUFI has been highly critical of the Biden administration’s increasing pressure on Israel, the organization’s leaders believe the primary impediment to advancing emergency aid to Israel is a small but loud group in the House. 

“There is widespread bipartisan support for aid to Israel in the House of Representatives, yet this legislative branch is being held hostage from within, undermining both American and Israeli national security. Our members are compelled by their faith to act on this issue, and act we shall,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker. 

Due to space limitations, press attendance is invitation-only. However, a live stream of the Monday evening event will be made available by clicking here at 7:30pm EDT.

With more than 10 million members, Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its educational message. 

The CUFI Action Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), nonpartisan organization, is the policy arm of the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, Christians United for Israel (CUFI). The Action Fund is dedicated to ensuring our elected officials hear the perspective of the millions of Christian Zionists across the country.
