Julia Fisher talks to Alex (HaGafen) – Whilst in Tel Aviv recently, I met Alex. He was born into a Jewish family in Russia and came to live in Israel when he was 15. We met at a coffee bar on a noisy street, as you will hear! Like all new immigrants to the country, he had to learn the language and do his army service … but for Alex, life suddenly became more difficult when he discovered he had leukaemia. Would he survive? In search of answers he turned to Judaism and became an orthodox Jew. But as you will hear, this was not the answer for him.
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.
