Host a CUFI Event

MOST CHRISTIANS KNOW IT’S GOOD TO SUPPORT ISRAEL. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW WHY.

One of the most effective ways you can become better informed about the biblical mandate to support Israel and stand with the Jewish people is to host a CUFI speaker event in your community. CUFI speakers deliver dynamic presentations that will answer your crucial questions and present the essential reasons why Israel matters to God, to Christians, to America, and to the world. The information you will glean from hosting a CUFI speaker will enlighten and equip both you and your community to participate in God’s biblical mandate to stand with the nation of Israel with prayer—and with action.

While an honorarium is not expected, we do request that an offering is collected as a donation to CUFI to help offset travel costs and materials.

CUFI’s Why Israel presentation offers a comprehensive Biblical overview of both ancient and modern Israel, tracing God’s faithful miraculous deliverance, while revealing the origins of anti-Semitism. This faith kindling message reminds us that God is a promise keeper, gives attendees a concise look at Israel’s struggles and security challenges, and shows how and why Christians are standing with Israel and the Jewish people. The presentation is available as a 60 to 90 minutes stand-alone event, or a 30-minute Sunday morning appropriate service message.

Kasim Hafeez

CUFI Middle East Analyst

Kasim Hafeez is a British citizen of Pakistani Muslim heritage who grew up being exposed to radical anti-Western, antisemitic, and anti-Israel ideas daily. During his teenage years, Kasim embraced a radical Islamist ideology and became very active in the anti-Israel movement. Thankfully, Alan Dershowitz’s book The Case for Israel challenged Kasim’s fundamental beliefs and caused him to undertake a period of research and reflection that led him to Israel in 2007. Witnessing the true nature of the Jewish state changed Kasim’s perception of Israel. He felt a moral obligation to publicly speak out for Israel and the dangers of radical Islam. He has spoken all over the world including the 2013 Global Forum on Combatting Antisemitism and before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. Kasim has appeared on radio, television, and in print media. Kasim also appears alongside Holocaust survivor Irving Roth in CUFI’s full-length feature documentary Never Again?.
