Frequently Asked Questions
What is "I Will Not Forget"?
A global event on Yom HaShoah - Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 15th
2015 - in which we remember "The Darkness" and "The Light"
This is an opportunity for the church to now show God's love to His Chosen People.
The Darkness: The unspeakable tragedy of the six million Holocaust victims and survivors...
The Light: Those Christians who gave their health, wealth and in some instances their lives to rescue and aid Jewish people.
Who is putting this event on?
This event is sponsored by the Friends of Zion Heritage Center – a brand new museum in Jerusalem that tells the story of Christian Heroes and their history. The museum shares the story of The Darkness and the Light in a way that is hi-tech, innovative and interactive. This remarkable museum is now open as a place of inspiration. Here visitors will see how Christian Zionists played a vital role in the establishment of the nation of Israel – and why their ongoing support of God’s Chosen people is so vital. The museum was established with the support of the international friends of The Jerusalem Prayer Team.
Why is this event being held now?
This year is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camps, and the memory of both Holocaust survivors and Christian heroes who helped them will fade if we do not act now. The nation of Israel is under attack on every side, and in great need of support as well.
Why should my church take part in this event?
A large number of Jewish people believe that Christians hate them and would do evil to them if given the opportunity. As the church we must show them a different story—that true Believers love and care for the Jewish people.
What is the focus of "I Will Not Forget"?
This is much more than a time of mourning for the sins of the past—it is an inspiring and motivating message for our day. It is part of God's end-time plan for His church to pray for and support His Chosen People.
What is the cost for participating in this event?
There is no cost. This is a free event.
Will people be asked for an offering or gifts for the Friends of Zion Heritage Center?
No. This is an event designed to promote love between Christians and Jews, and all the costs have been covered by the gifts of our Jerusalem Prayer Team members.
What is involved in being part of this event?
We encourage churches to incorporate this special event into their church service.
Churches have a number of options for participating. We are encouraging meetings on Wednesday, April 15 which is Holocaust Remembrance Day. Churches may wish to use part of the previous or following Sunday services as well. This remembrance could be part of a small group meeting or presented to the entire congregation.
In addition, churches can choose to receive a FREE DVD of the full 30-minute program, which can be reviewed before the event and then played for your group. There is also a shortened 10-minute version that is especially designed for Sunday services.
Since the early 1950s the nation of Israel has set aside one day a year to mourn the six million Jewish people who perished in the Holocaust. It is a day of solemn remembrance.
