July 28-30, 2024

Scripture gives us an example in the prophet Isaiah to speak up for Israel and the Jewish people:

For Zion’s sake, I will not keep silent” (Isaiah 62:1).

CUFI’s 2024 Summit is your opportunity to do just that—to stand up and speak out for Zion’s sake.

Join us at the 2024 CUFI Summit in our spectacular new location: The Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Only 8 miles south of D.C., The Gaylord adjoins the 300-acre National Harbor waterfront entertainment district, an ideal summer getaway location.
