The 19th annual Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel will be Saturday at 6:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:30 p.m. at New Life Church, 2345 19th St., Moline.
A free-will offering will directly assist Ukrainian Jewish families fleeing the war in Ukraine and immigrating to Israel, a news release says.
Keynote speak will be Kasim Hafeez, field coordinator for Christians United for Israel. Hafeez is a British citizen of Pakistani heritage who grew up being exposed to radical anti-Western, anti-Semitic, and anti-Israel ideas daily, the release says.
After reading Alan Dershowitz’s book “The Case for Israel,” Hafeez undertook a period of research and reflection that led him to visit Israel and undergo a complete change in his perception of Israel, the release says. Hafeez now feels a moral obligation to publicly speak out in support of the Jewish State.
Among the evening’s features will be a Dershowitz-produced short video about the importance of Christians and Jews working together to support the Jewish State. The event also will include song, prayer and celebration.
