2. The Church Has a ‘Biblical Responsibility to Stand with Israel’ Says Filmmaker

By Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler

Brian Sanders is a man with a powerful mission. He wants to remind Christians worldwide of what he calls their “Biblical responsibility to stand with Israel.” And he plans to do that with a film.

Sanders, CEO and Executive Producer of the forthcoming documentary Why Stand With Israel, told Breaking Israel News that he was motivated to begin this ambitious project because of the lack of knowledge of some of his house guests and the church’s overall unawareness. “Several years ago, while hosting some friends at our house to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, I was astounded by how many Christians had so many misconceptions about Israel and were Biblically uninformed about their Judeo-Christian heritage.”

As a television and radio producer and videographer for over 20 years, Sanders naturally turned to film as a way to convey the story he wanted to tell. “I felt there needed to be an avenue to expose all these lies and misconceptions about Israel and to encourage the Church that it’s time to eradicate our long history of antisemitism and our replacement theology teaching that we somehow replaced the Jewish people as God’s chosen people.”

3. Revolutionary Israeli Wheelchair Empowers Impoverished Children Around the World

Pabio Kaplan left his job at a successful Israeli plastics company with a simple but noble idea that would evolve into a startup, bringing “Wheelchairs of Hope” to children around the world.

While working at his job in a plastics factory in Israel, Pabio Kaplan had a brilliant idea. It compelled him to leave his lucrative job and invest his own savings into a company that would produce a new type of wheelchair, made from plastics and accessible to even the poorest children in the world.

Wheelchairs of Hope has attracted the attention of both the World Health Organization and UNICEF.

There are nearly five million children living in impoverished areas of the world who need access to a wheelchair but have no means or hope of acquiring one. These special chairs are built in Israel, funded by Israelis, and delivered to those children because of the idea of one man.

2. The First Temple was built by King Solomon after his father King David conquered Jerusalem and made it the eternal capital of the Jewish people. It stood for 400 years until Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple and exiled the Jews to Babylon. Even after the destruction, the Jews never gave up hope of returning to Jerusalem. After Herod rose to power, he built the Second Temple where the First Temple stood. The Romans destroyed the Second Temple in 70 CE, after the Jews rebelled against Roman oppression.
