Julia Fisher talks to Claude Ezagouri. This week we continue with the story. Today Claude is the pastor of a Messianic congregation in Tiberias, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. Last week he described his early life – born in Algeria to Jewish parents, the family moved to southern France when Claude was just a few years old. Later, Claude and his French wife Michelle (who had converted to Judaism) decided to make aliyah and move to Israel. They joined a kibbutz where Claude worked on a banana plantation. This was a turbulent period in their lives as Claude’s search for the spiritual meaning to life took him in a surprising direction.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
