Sen. Joseph Lieberman and Pastor John Hagee addressed a crowd of more than 2,500 at a Night to Honor Israel. The event was hosted by Christians United for Israel (CUFI) at The First Cathedral in Bloomfield.
Archbishop LeRoy Bailey, Jr., lead pastor at The First Cathedral and a 2011 recipient of the Anti-Defamation League’s Greater Hartford Torch of Liberty Award, served as the event’s master of ceremonies.
Speaking of the Jewish people, Bailey said, “You are our friends. Our fathers taught us this when we were children. We love and thank God for choosing you to light our lamp of faith in the Lord we have chosen.”
During his remarks, Lieberman discussed the importance of Christians and Jews working together in support of Israel, and the impact CUFI’s efforts were having in Washington.
“Senators Bob Casey, Lindsey Graham and I introduced a bipartisan resolution last month that explicitly rules out a strategy of containment for Iran and reaffirms that the U.S. has a vital national interest in preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear-weapons capability,” Lieberman said.
