Julia Fisher talks to Evan Bass – Today I’m in BeerSheva in the Negev in the south of Israel. Beersheva is mentioned several times in the Bible – Abraham dug a well there, Samuel was a judge there and Elijah took refuge there. Today it is home to over 200,000 Jewish people mostly immigrants from Arab countries, India, Russia and Ethiopia. My guest today is Evan Bass. He knows BeerSheva well. He was born and grew up there. Son of a Messianic Jewish pastor he had the challenge of finding his own identity. We met in a coffee shop and I asked Evan to describe what life was like for him growing up.
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.
