    A historic gathering of Jews and Christians took place on October 14, 2014 in praising the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through the Hallel (Psalms 113-118). This was the first time the religious Israeli Jewish community invited Christians visiting Israel to celebrate the Sukkot holiday with them. The service was done by CJCUC in partnership with CFOIC, Heart to Heart, Israel365, Keshet Educational Tours, and Zion's Gate International.
