(1/27/2022) SAN ANTONIO – On Thursday, the leadership of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the nation’s largest pro-Israel organization, marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day by emphasizing the importance of efforts to combat antisemitism.
“Antisemitism is alive and well in the United States, and it must be stamped out. Silence in the face of this abomination has never and will never be an option for any person of conscience. On this day, of all days, we should acknowledge that any school, parent, or house of worship that fails to teach their children about the horrors of the Holocaust and the dangers of antisemitism is failing those children and the memories of six million lives lost in the Shoah,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee.
“As one cannot defeat that which they are unwilling to define, we are working with states across the country to ensure that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) definition of antisemitism is acknowledged and appropriately utilized. In addition, we are working with educators to address the woeful state of Holocaust education in many school districts across the country. We will not stop until every child in America has a firm and personal understanding of the genocide by which all others are measured,” said CUFI Action Fund Chairwoman Sandra Parker.
Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming recently announced proclamations commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day and acknowledging the IHRA definition.
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 50 states and reaches millions with its educational message.
The CUFI Action Fund, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), nonpartisan organization, is related to 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.
