Interview: Flavia Sevald, Jerusalem Institute of Justice

Here on The Friends of Israel Today, we spend a great deal of time teaching and promoting all things Israel! And this week we want to introduce you to a unique organization in Israel that is working hard to promote human & civil rights through legal & advocacy tools not only in Israel but around the world. The Jerusalem Institute of Justice (JIJ) works hard to ensure every life in Israel is treated with dignity. Today we’ll hear from Flavia Sevald, the CEO of JIJ. 

Flavia will share with us the important and life-saving ways JIJ is working in Jerusalem. With only a small staff of lawyers and researchers, JIJ has taken the Israeli government to court on important matters that involve churches and other houses of worship. They are actively trying to hold the Palestinian Authority responsible for indoctrinating hate and promoting terrorism to their own children. They are also helping Israeli’s who are dealing with injustice by representing them in the courts. And the amazing part? They are doing it for free! 

Why should matters of justice in Israel matter to Christians? Because justice matters to God! 

We were moved by Flavia’s interview and we hope you will be too. If you would like to help JIJ and other important groups in Israel, you can donate to our Israel Relief Fund.
