A witness to the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, the prophet Jeremiah foretold of a time in the future when the exile would come to an end and “watchmen“, or “notzrim” (notz-reem) in Hebrew, will inspire the Jewish nation to return to the borders of Israel, rebuild God’s Temple and serve Him with their entire being. Who are these “watchmen” to whom Jeremiah was referring? In modern Hebrew, the word “notzrim” is understood to mean Christians, as those who come from the city of Nazareth. From here we learn that it is incumbent upon every single Jew to cherish any Christian who is willing to aid in the process of returning to the Land of Israel and ultimately usher in the final redemption. With their endless efforts building communities throughout Judea and Samaria, as well as educating worldwide audiences about the importance of supporting the Holy Land’s pioneers, Christian benefactors of CFOIC have endlessly contributed towards this mission of bringing Jews home.
