South African Christian leaders visit Israel for dialogue and reconciliation, March 22-27, 2024.”

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, March 20, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — A delegation of eminent South African Christian leaders is set to embark on a historic and transformative journey to Israel from March 22 to 27, 2024. This initiative, orchestrated by Diploact and facilitated by the South African Friends of Israel (SAFI), is a proactive step towards bridging the understanding between South Africa and Israel amidst recent political and social tensions.

Building Bridges of Understanding: The delegation, comprising prominent political and religious figures, will delve into the rich cultural heritage of Israel and engage in meaningful dialogues with local leaders. The visit is aimed at witnessing firsthand the complexities of the region, thereby challenging misconceptions and fostering an environment conducive to dialogue and reconciliation.

A Response to the International Court of Justice Trial: This journey is particularly significant in the context of the recent ICJ trial, where South Africa accused Israel of genocide – a claim that was later dismissed by the court. Amidst the backdrop of this discord, the visit symbolizes a beacon of hope and a commitment to truth and mutual respect.

Prominent Delegates and Diverse Itinerary: The delegation includes notable figures from South Africa. Their itinerary is packed with visits to sacred sites, discussions with political and community leaders, and participation in cultural and educational events. This will enable them to gain a deeper understanding of the region’s historical and current realities.

About Diploact: Diploact, an Israeli NGO, has been instrumental in organizing this visit. With a mission to combat anti-Semitism and promote a positive image of Israel globally, Diploact emphasizes knowledge-driven action to foster understanding and reshape perceptions.

About SAFI: SAFI plays a crucial role in extending outreach to the broader South African community. It aims to convey factual information, counter propaganda, and shape public opinion about Israel, leveraging Israel’s technological innovation for the upliftment of South Africans.

A Journey for Peace and Reconciliation: This visit is more than a diplomatic tour; it is a journey towards understanding, empathy, and lasting peace. The delegation aspires to return to South Africa with renewed insights and a commitment to promote peace, dialogue, and mutual respect.
