( The Israeli Knesset’s Christian Allies Caucus and the World Jewish Congress on Thursday presented special awards to Christian leaders Jay Rawlings and Duke Westover for their commitment to Israel at the 10th annual “Night to Honor Our Christian Allies” ceremony.

Rawlings, who has produced more than 130 documentary films about Israel and runs the Israel Vision TV network, was recognized for his efforts to educate a global audience about anti-Israel bigotry.

Westover received a tourism award for organizing, with his wife Carlene, more than 75 trips to Israel for thousands of Christians, politicians, and advocacy organizations. 

“Today it is Christians, not countries, that stand with Israel. We must recognize the importance of that support and encourage it whenever we can,” said Knesset Christian Allies Caucus Director Josh Reinstein.
