The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ), Israel, holds a virtual Feast of Tabernacles, inviting Chinese Christians to participate.
As the largest annual Christian gathering in Israel, the 42nd Sukkot celebration lasts from September 20 to 27 this year. Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic since January 2020, ICEJ held a virtual celebration like last year. During the week of Sukkot, besides daily broadcasting, they transmit important locations around Jerusalem and Israel live via Christian TV channels around the world to reach Israeli Christian supporters worldwide.
The eight-day Global Feast of Tabernacles features “Days of Elijah” and focused on topics such as “Feast of Tabernacles & Biblical Holidays”, “Current Affairs in Israel & Region”, “Local Believers in Israel”, “Isaiah 19 Highway”, “Next Generation”, “Global Pray & Praise Reports”, “Virtual Tours to Key Bible Sites”. In addition to many outstanding doctors and pastors, ICEJ also invited senior Israeli officials in the new Bennett-Rapid government, who would express their gratitude to Christian supporters around the world for their unwavering solidarity with the Jewish nation and people.
ICEJ President Dr. Jürgen Bühler said, “We are particularly excited about the new Israeli government’s engagement with the Christian world through our gatherings. Never before have we had so many senior Israeli cabinet ministers addressing the gathering as this year, which shows that the government does understand and value the support of Christianity to the Jewish state and people. We are also very grateful for the holiday greetings from President Herzog, who has actively reached out to pro-Israel Christians throughout his public undertakings.
According to its official website, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was established in 1980 to recognize the biblical significance of all of Jerusalem and its unique connection with the Jewish people. It acknowledges the restoration of the State of Israel God's faithfulness to keep His ancient covenant with the Jewish people. The organization launched the annual Feast of Tabernacles gathering in Jerusalem in the 1980s.
