For those not otherwise engaged with a sweetheart, Israel boosters and the Christians who love them will be hosting a smoochfest in D.C. on the afternoon of February 14.
Hosted by the Covenant Alliances, the reception will celebrate the recently established Congressional Israel Allies Caucus, which was formed last summer and has the goal of mobilizing Christian support for Israel around the world. It is modeled after a Christian allies caucus created in the Knesset a few years ago.
Caucus co-chairs Rep. Eliot Engel and Rep. David Weldon will co-host the D.C. gathering, along with Knesset member Rabbi Benyamin Elon.
