Mr. Eliezer Braun
What is the main focus of your activities today?
Two/three trips speaking to Christian friends of Israel in USA/Europe but as of a year ago focus is mainly speaking to Christian tourists traveling to Israel
How long have you been doing that?
What are some of the successful related programs or projects that you have done this year and in past years?
Raising funds for Aliyah and Klita program that brought hundreds of Olim to Shavei Shomron, Einav and Chinanit in the Shomron. Providing funds for building kindergarten, playground and other equipment
in Chavat Gilad, providing financial assistance to families who lost everything when their caravan homes were burnt to the ground by terrorists, procuring equipment for special education program in Kochav Yair etc.
How did you get to where you are today?
I spoke with my first Christian pro Israel audience in 1994 while I was on Shlicut in Southern California and networking/word of mouth blossomed from there and led to speaking in USA, Canada, Hong Kong, China, Mexico, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Faroe Islands, Ireland, England, Germany, South Africa and a few other countries that may have slipped my mind
What is your “testimony”?
I was born and raised in Chicago, attended Northeastern Illinois University where I earned a BA in Psychology, followed by an MA in Educational Administration and Jewish Studies from the University of Illinois and Spertus College of Judaica.
I made Aliyah in 1983, and my wife Ellen and I moved our young family to Israel. Since 1994 I have traveled the world speaking on behalf of the State of Israel, on topics including Aliyah and living in Israel, the re-establishment of Israel and how it fulfills Biblical prophecy, the future reunification of the Northern and Southern kingdoms, the Holocaust, and the current political situation in Israel and the Middle East.
What do you think God is doing with regard to Jewish-Christian relations?
After years of separation, I believe that God is bringing Jews and Christians together through the words of the prophets in fulfilling Gods Promise to restore the people of Israel to the Land and God of Israel. I think the following Biblical Scripture says it all.
“Do not urge me to leave you, to turn back and not follow you. For wherever you go, I will go; wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.”
