Christ Fellowship, Palm Beach Gardens

Thanks to the leadership of the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), a group of Israelis were welcomed to the Palm Beach County community and while here had the opportunity to meet with a few local churches, including: Christ Fellowship, the largest Evangelical Church in Florida; the St. Vincent Catholic Seminar in Boynton Beach, the main Catholic seminary in the area; and the Metropolitan Community Church in Palm Beach Gardens, a local gay churches. The purpose of the visit was to speak with non-Jews in South Florida and highlight the diversity that exists today in Israel today and the challenges and issues that the Israeli society is currently facing, including: Arab and Jewish relations; the power of the Orthodox; homosexuality; culture and everyday life; and the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. The Israeli group included individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities and groups, including: religious, secular, homosexual, Ethiopian, Russians and fourth generation Israelis.
