Hope at the Door, Global Prayer and Palm Sunday!


Hope is at the Door this Passover!

Since 1996, ICEJ Homecare has provided nursing assistance and emotional support to Israel’s most vulnerable population. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, many of the people we visit and help on a weekly basis are not able to have visitors. This is especially difficult during this Passover season, because it is usually a time when everyone gathers together with their families to celebrate the week-long holiday. Unfortunately, many will be alone in their homes this Passover.

Therefore, the ICEJ Homecare is taking extra care of those in need by providing home deliveries of food and simply being a source of friendship and hope at the doors for many! Join us in bringing hope and light to Israelis in need as they celebrate this unusual Passover alone in their homes!


Join our Global Prayer Gathering This Wednesday!

The ICEJ hosted an amazing online Global Prayer Gathering on Wednesday of this week via Zoom to urgently pray into the current Coronavirus threat in Israel and around the world. It was a very powerful and encouraging time of prayer with our friends in ministry Angus Buchan, Mats Ola, Suzette Hattig, Peter Tsukahira, and many others. And we know it strengthened and blessed the many believers from 63 nations who joined us to offer up our prayers together during this difficult time.

You are invited to join us for the next online Global Prayer Gathering, which will take place this coming Wednesday, 8 April 2020 at 4:00 PM once again. We have commitments from many global Christian leaders to join us again in leading prayer. Since this is the Eve of Passover, we will be adding a special online Communion service during the prayer time, which will be officiated over by a Messianic Jewish leader and an Arab pastor. So have your own Communion elements prepared and we hope to see you then!


He Wore A Crown Of Thorns

This weekend, the Christian world will mark Palm Sunday and the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. In a normal year, there are large crowds retracing his route over the Mount of Olives in the Palm Sunday procession. The march is very colorful, with participants waving palm branches and singing hymns. Most are traditional Christians, including many local Arab Christians along with pilgrims from dozens of nations abroad.

But this year, like so many other public events at this time, the Palm Sunday procession has been shelved due to the Coronavirus threat. Planes cannot bring pilgrims to the Holy Land, and both Israel and the Palestinian Authority are cooperating (perhaps more closely than ever) to keep all local residents at home to prevent the spread of the virus.

But this should not prevent us from celebrating in our hearts this key moment in the life of Jesus. It has so much meaning and symbolism, and helps us understand better what happened just days later in the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It is part of the wonder and passion of Christ, who gave his life that we might live, and this is a message we all need in this trying hour.
