Several dozen protesters demonstrate loudly outside the Pais Arena in Jerusalem, where the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem is holding its Israeli Night as part of its annual Feast of the Tabernacles.
They call out to those walking into the stadium that the ICEJ is a missionary organization, and hold a banner that reads “We should stand strong as proud Jews. Faithfully for Generations!”
No protesters have managed to infiltrate the event inside thus far, where Intelligence Minister Gila Gamliel addresses the crowd.
President Isaac Herzog sends a video greeting, pledging to protect freedom of worship for all faiths.
