There is an overwhelming stirring in the black community to stand with and support Israel.
Generations of African American Christians have had a biblical allegiance to the Jewish people but without a clear understanding of why this is so important or a practical plan for how to help Israel. African Americans can identify with the pain and plight of a people dislocated, disenfranchised, and disheartened. Yet it is the Jewish community that has supported the African American community during some of its most challenging times. In fact, did you know that a disproportionate number of non-blacks who marched during the civil rights movement of the 1960s were Jewish?We Too Stand
seeks to enlighten and educate African American churches and communities across the country about the importance of supporting Israel. This book will serve as a comprehensive study for any African American church setting regardless of denomination. We Too Stand
will be important to African American churches and the Jewish community at large, as it will seek to build bridges of commonality and cultural appreciation.
