SIGNIFICANCE OF 2017
Israel Team comes to the world stage at a unique time in history.
Our non-profit was officially launched in January 2017—a year of great significance. We see 2017 as a year of great significance. Several key anniversaries occur in 2017.
The Balfour Declaration
With the Balfour Declaration, the British government declared its support for a Jewish state in the land of Palestine.
UN Resolution 181
This resolution (for the first time) called for the creation of 2 states in British Mandate Palestine—one for the Jews and one for the Arabs.
The Six Day War
Egypt and Jordan attacked Israel in 1967 and as a result, lost the Sinai, West Bank, the Golan Heights, East Jerusalem and Gaza.
These were pivotal events in the life of Israel. At this point in history, they face a very dangerous world—a world that is increasingly fed a distorted reality about Israel and the Jewish people. Distortions that threaten their very existence. Our mission, beginning in 2017, is to help heal those distortions and bring a generation into a new appreciation of God’s people.
