Julia Fisher talks to Daniel Yahav – Recently I was in Tiberias, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel to meet Daniel Yahav. From a German Jewish family, his father survived the holocaust and Daniel was born and brought up in Israel. Today he pastors a large congregation by Israeli standards. Daniel has also been a tank commander in the Israeli army and is still an army reservist as you will hear. I asked him to describe both aspects of his life living close to the northern borders with Syria and Lebanon in these days of heightened danger.
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.
