ICEJ joins the prestigious Herzliya Conference
The city of Herzliya, located on the Mediterranean coast just north of Tel Aviv, earned international fame for its entrepreneurial culture, and since the year 2000, the city has hosted one of the most impacting policy conferences in Israel. Strategists, politicians, economic and community leaders come to the annual Herzliya Conference to discuss the current and future affairs of Israel, as well as the Middle East in general. The event is organized by the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, one of Israel’s most prestigious colleges. 
 
This year the ICEJ was privileged to be a contributor at the conference. As a special guest of the ICEJ, former United States Governor Michael Huckabee presented his views on the current elections in the USA and its impact on Israel. As one of the early candidates for the US presidential election and as a strong evangelical leader, Huckabee was warmly welcomed and his insights were met with great interest. In addition, at another session ICEJ’s Executive Director, Dr. Jürgen Bühler, and International Director, Juha Ketola, shared their expertise on the state of Christians in Israel and the Middle East. 
 
“It is a great privilege and a wonderful opportunity to be an active part of this strategic conference, and to bring a Christian perspective to it,” said Dr. Bühler, who also appreciated the insights he gained from the event.
