Israel Fills Our Hearts And Soul

Every city in Israel has numerous active sister city relationships. Ashdod alone is partnered with Bordeaux, France; Bahia Blanca, Argentina; Tampa, Florida; Wuhan, China; Spandau, Germany; and Los Angeles. In the past month, eight American universities announced new initiatives to partner with Israeli universities: Washington University, Harvard, Barnard College (Columbia), Arizona State University, Case Western Reserve, Michigan State, and the Universities of Florida, Maryland, and Miami. Several weeks ago, the all-time tourism record was set when Brazilian Pastor Jomber Araujo Vladislav stepped off an El Al plane and became Israel’s three millionth visitor this year. When asked why he and his group of Christian pilgrims came, Pastor Vladislav answered for so many of those who share in the Israel experience:  “The visit to Israel fills our heart and soul. Israel is a blessing upon all the nations.”
