Speaking with Don Horwitz

 

PneumaReview.com: How should Christian leaders respond to the ongoing problem of anti-Semitism?

Don Horwitz: Christian leaders have a very important responsibility because of the leadership role and example they set among their congregations. While unprecedented progress has been made over the past few decades in improving Jewish-Christian relations, there is no room for complacency. Anti-Semitism can grow out of negative portrayals of Jews, which at times can be very subtle, but dangerous nevertheless.

Church leaders must communicate that Christians must be advocates of justice around the world and support Israel’s right to exist as the Jewish homeland. They must remind the world of Israel’s sacred place among nations and defeat anti-Semitism wherever it exists.

I am personally grateful for the love, prayers and support that Christians around the world send to Israel and the Jewish people every day.

About the Author: Don Horwitz is the Executive Director of Christians Care International. As the grandson of Russian Jewish immigrants who fled for their lives from Ukraine in 1917, Don has always maintained a strong connection with his family’s heritage. After repeated visits to Russia and Ukraine, Don saw first-hand the countless children, orphans and adults left suffering from neglect and abuse. Don decided to act – adopting his three daughters from Russia, founding a charity in Moscow to help other orphans, and helping make documentary films about the humanitarian crisis facing vulnerable Jews of the former Soviet Union. It was his experience making these films for the organization that would become Christians Care International that eventually led to his answering the call to lead the organization as its Executive Director.
