CNEWA Connection

We asked our regional director in Jerusalem, Sami El-Yousef, to explain CNEWA’s involvement with the Latin Patriarchate’s Hebrew-speaking vicariate. He responded:

“The Synod of Bishops for the Middle East that was convened in Rome in 2010 highlighted the need for the local church to ensure that it takes care of all the faithful in its territories regardless of where they were born, what language they speak, or what political views they may have. We at CNEWA listened intently and immediately started to support the work of the vicariate of the Hebrew-speaking community in Israel as well as the coordination to support the migrants whose needs are many.”

CNEWA, he explained, not only supports the work of the vicariate financially, but also gives support to the St. Rachel Center and a newly established center for migrants in Tel Aviv.

“Anyone who visits the Pastoral Center for Migrants and Asylum Seekers in Tel Aviv, which is affiliated with the newly inaugurated Church of Our Lady Woman of Valor, feels the deep spiritual link to the church and its institutions and the abundant faith of these communities,” he wrote. “CNEWA is very proud to be part of this exciting development in Israel.”
