(JNS.org) John Hagee Ministries distributed more than $3.2 million to Israeli and Jewish charities earlier this week at the 34th annual “Night to Honor Israel” at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio.
Organizations receiving support from Hagee Ministries included Afikim Family Enrichment Association, American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, Bikur V’Ezras Cholim, Friends of the IDF, Galilee Medical Center, Heart of Benjamin, Herzl Institute, Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio, International Council of Young Israel, Israel Help and Education Center at Kiryat Gat, Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum, Jewish Agency for Israel, Just One Life, Koby Mandell Foundation, Laniado Hospital, Magen David Adom, Meir Panim, Nefesh B’Nefesh, Netanya Academic College, Ohr Torah Stone, Or L’Doron, Shurat HaDin - Israel Law Center, and Women’s International Zionist Organization.
Hagee Ministries has distributed more than $95 million to Israeli and Jewish charities since holding its first Night to Honor Israel.
Pastor John Hagee, who besides leading Hagee Ministries is the founder and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, said at the Oct. 25 event in San Antonio, “Tonight our hearts are heavy for the Israelis being murdered by Palestinian terrorists.” U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the night’s other keynote speaker, blasted the Obama administration-brokered Iran nuclear deal.
“The Iran deal is not a deal,” Scott said. “I don’t understand how we call that a deal because we didn’t get anything out of the deal.”
