From the Jewish Chronicle:
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is to visit Israel in May, accompanied by his wife Caroline.
The couple spent their honeymoon there and Archbishop Welby is said to be “thrilled” at the prospect of returning.
For security reasons few details of the trip have yet been confirmed, but it is known that the Archbishop will give a major speech on the theme of reconciliation at the Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa.
The visit, expected to last for up to 12 days, will take in Amman, Jerusalem, Haifa and Acre, as well as Bethlehem.
From Breaking Israel News:
Speaking in a keynote message at the annual Proclaiming Justice to the Nations’ (PJTN) International Prayer and Dinner Event for Israel held at the World Center in Orlando, Father Gabriel Naddaf of Nazareth encouraged American Christians to stand with Israel against the BDS – boycott, divest and sanction – movement.
He told the capacity audience of hundreds of PJTN watchmen in attendance that “as one of the few surviving Christians in the Middle-East, I praise God daily for the blessing of being able to call myself an Israeli.” He continued by praising the work of PJTN under Laurie Cardoza-Moore’s leadership, which has spearheaded the campaign to pass anti-BDS legislation across the United States stating, “I call upon anyone in any state who has not already passed an anti-BDS resolution to reach out to PJTN.”
Responding to a Muslim’s question about Jew hatred, Rabbi Tovia Singer traces the root of the Church’s most virulent strain of antisemitism.
