Updates on Israel

Current News and Resources on The War in Israel
Note: Please select "Israel Relief" from the Fund dropdown on our GIVE page.
Well Versed is attempting to find ways to support the Jewish people against the onslaught of murder launched by Hamas. The Israel Relief Fund will go towards providing some very basic things for some of the 300,000 reservists who were called into active duty with no time to prepare. The need things as basic as socks, underwear and toothbrushes.
The funds of Well Versed will not be used for offensive weapons, such as guns or ammo. The U.S. Government can supply such items, but private citizens cannot. Thus we are looking for ways to supply basic items and even protective gear, but not items used on offense.
In addition, some of the funds will be used for humanitarian efforts, such as helping those profoundly impacted by war.
We have spent considerable time trying to find ways to bless the Jewish people and the State of Israel, in conformity with Genesis 12:1-3.
"Today we reached another 500 soldiers with the equipment they are asking for (warm clothes)."

Food Supply Chain Broken? Food Shortage In America? Certainly Not.
December 2nd, 2023
Doug Tjaden is an expert on the food supply chain. We have not faced famine in America since the stock market crash of 1929 or the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s. That was nearly a century ago. Therefore, we cannot fathom a time when the grocery store shelves would be empty. However, the food supply chain is somewhat overextended. Did you know that the average distance that food travels from the far...

SPECIAL ISRAEL radio broadcasts (aUDIO FORMAT)

We’ve all been shocked and stunned watching the news coming out of Israel.  As we watch with interest and broken hearts, Dr. Jim Garlow has prepared special features that will start airing October 12th - October 24th. 
As someone who is well-versed on all matters concerning Israel and Hamas, Jim helps explain the reasons behind the attacks and why Israel is at war.  

And, with every program closing, Jim reminds us of our calling:
To pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

israel: what you need to know

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO LIKE THE LEGAL ISSUES:  I know most of you care much more about the Biblical (and legitimate) claim of the Jews to the land of Israel, but some of you might care about the legal issues. Rosemary and I have been to The International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands.

Israel's Legal Land Rights and Border

Dr. Jim Garlow - Well Versed Newsletter | October 23, 2022
I want you to understand how to defend Israel from its constant attackers. Even some “evangelicals” like to advocate arrogant “Replacement Theology” (the church replaced the Jews and Israel), a subtle form of anti-Semitism. My doctoral studies are in church history. Even some of our key leaders (the Early Church Fathers and Reformation leader Martin Luther), in the midst of all their great writings, were often shockingly anti-Semitic. 

The Jews and Their Struggle to Have a Homeland

Understanding Israel's War 

Dr. Jim Garlow - Well Versed Newsletter | May 13-17, 2021
(Just as it was in 2021, it is relevant today)
Israel is at war…again. Why? The Islamic jihadists want all the Jews dead. Israel and the Jewish people have only 1/6th of 1% of the land in the Middle East. The Arab Muslims have 99 5/6ths % of the land. But that is not enough. Most of them want 100% of the land. Most of them want the Jews dead.
So, once again, it’s partially about the land, but more importantly, it is about killing Jews. How did we get here? Allow me to take you on a whirlwind tour. 

Iran, U.S. State Department, and Israel

Urgent: Sign Letter to President Biden Supporting Israel Now! Mr. President, we need you to take stronger action on behalf of Israel.

National Faith Advisory Board | October 19, 2023
Dear Faith Leaders,

We ask you to join us in calling on President Biden and the U.S. Congress to Support Israel, by signing the letter below. As America's LARGEST FAITH COALITION, we must speak with one united voice and defend Israel.

It is imperative that we keep the pressure on our government to stand strong with Israel and give them the time to protect their people - our people.

Please continue to pray for the peace of Israel, and share this email far and wide with people of faith.

This week thousands of people of faith globally joined the National Faith Advisory Board for an Emergency Prayer Call for Israel.

National Faith Advisory Board | October 13, 2023
This week thousands of people of faith globally joined the National Faith Advisory Board for an Emergency Prayer Call for Israel. In less than 24 hours, thousands upon thousands of faith leaders of every denomination signed up to join as we prayed with one voice, for peace and healing for Israel and the Jewish community globally.

Rabbi Tuly Weisz joined NFAB via phone from Israel. He asked people of faith to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel, who need our prayers and support now more than ever. Pastor Jentezen Franklin reminded all pastors and faith leaders in the strongest of terms, this is NOT the time to be silent. Thousands joined as he recited the Lord’s prayer together. This is the moment to speak fervently and boldly. Pastor Paula White-Cain called on us all to stand with the Jewish people and light Shabbat candles tomorrow. Pastor Sam Rodriguez proclaimed the powerful connection between people of Jewish and Christian faith, and Dr Jim Garlow shared his list of top 41 facts we should know about Israel and Hamas.

We ask you to PRAY - for the protection over the lives of the Jewish people; for righteousness, peace and justice; for healing for those who have lost loved ones; for those in captivity and families ripped apart; for wisdom for our world leaders; for unity of America and its allies against those who attacked Israel; and for all those ministering now in Israel.

A Star Is Born: Hebrew University’s President Wheels on His Counterparts at Harvard and Stanford for Failing To Show ‘Moral Courage’ on Israel

The New York Sun | A.R. Hofmann | October 12, 2023
Asher Cohen calls Harvard and Stanford ‘lighthouses that failed us’ in one of two devastating letters to the leading figures in American academia.

Harvard and Stanford are “lighthouses that have failed us.” That is the word from Hebrew University, where the president of one of Israel’s flagship universities, Asher Cohen, accuses the Cambridge and Palo Alto powerhouses of issuing “shockingly feeble condemnations” that fail to “unequivocally” reckon with the evil  of Hamas’s attacks on Israel.  

The release of public letters from Mr. Cohen and Hebrew University’s rector, Tamir Sheafer, to President Claudine Gay of Harvard and President Richard Saller of Stanford signals a remarkable escalation in the divisions Hamas’s atrocities have laid bare in academia’s hallowed halls. The letters also telegraph that the era of deference to America’s crown jewels of education could be nearing an end.

The correspondence comes as Harvard, Stanford, and other schools have shrunk from condemning forthrightly Hamas’s attacks. Mr. Cohen writes to the presidents of Harvard and Stanford that “you have failed us, not only as Israelis, who are subject to the imminent threat of being subject to genocide, but also as leaders of an academic institution.”
