A Movable Feast: Israel, American Evangelicals, and the Celebration of Sukkot

In the last 40 years, Sukkot, also known as the Feast of Tabernacles, has become a time when thousands of Evangelical Christians visit Jerusalem and celebrate the biblical holiday, and show support for Israel and the Jewish People. Join us to hear from:

  • How, why and when the modern Evangelical celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles began and why this is significant for Israel, American Evangelicals and Jews
  • How the State of Israel views the Evangelical connection to Sukkot and the significance for Israel for building faith-based relations
