And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’ “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Last Tuesday, we heard from workers with StandwithUsUK about the antisemitism in many of our universities, and the fear being experienced by many of the Jewish community.
As our meeting was in progress, the Israeli Ambassador to London, Tzipi Hotovely, faced a fierce protest at The London School of Economics.
The event took place on the 83rd anniversary of Kristallnacht, (The Night of Broken Glass) when paramilitary forces desecrated and destroyed Jewish businesses, synagogues and homes, burnt Torah Scrolls and books, and killed more than 90 Jewish people in Nazi Germany, others were rounded up and sent to Dachau and other concentration camps.
Today across the world the Jewish people face another onslaught of hatred.
We do hope and pray individual Christians will be able to donate a gift, no matter how small, to StandWithUsUK, to help them continue their work amongst young people in universities, and in other places.
This giving campaign will end on Monday 15th November.
May the Jewish community be encourage that there are Christians who stand with them at this very difficult time.

I support StandWithUs UK because I’ve seen first-hand how they educate young people with knowledge and confidence to stand up, stand strong and stand proud of Israel and the Jewish people.
StandWithUs UK regularly reaches thousands of students but it needs to be tens of thousands more. With rising antisemitism and toxic anti-Israel messaging online, in schools, and on campuses across the UK, we can’t sit by, we must act now.
Join me & invest in ‘Generations For Israel’ to empower our youth – and please forward this message to anyone else you feel might be able to help us.
Donations will be doubled, so please click here https://www.charityextra.com/standwithusuk/41027 and give as generously as possible.
