Statement on the Passing of Shimon Peres

The leadership and family of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) joins with the people of Israel in mourning the passing of Israel’s ninth president, Shimon Peres.

He had a tremendous impact in shaping this nation over his long and distinguished career of public service, which spans the seven decades of Israel’s modern history. From the start, he made valuable contributions to Israel’s vibrant democracy and to the nation’s defense. He was one of the first to recognize and promote Israel’s potential as a hub of technological achievement. And his relentless pursuit of peace and acceptance for Israel earned him admiration and accolades worldwide, including the Nobel Prize for Peace.

His passing marks the end of a generation of pioneering leaders who founded the modern state of Israel and secured its future. No doubt, his legacy will continue to bear fruit for the nation in the decades to come.

The ICEJ would like to encourage Christians around the world to stand with Israel in prayer at this time of mourning.
