E Anglia Friends of Israel host 3 day Norwich event 

Christian worship leader Ruth Fazal and linguist and Orthodox Jew Gil Pentzak are visiting Norwich from Israel to take part in a three day conversation and worship event at the House of Prayer and invite you to come and share on their journey.

East Anglia Friends of Israel are pleased to announce a very special visit to the House of Prayer, Norwich, by Ruth Fazal and Gil Pentzak from Israel on Wednesday, March 15 to Saturday, March 18.  They will present and lead a series of sessions called 'Now is The Time'.
Ruth Fazal is a British Canadian Christian singer songwriter and worship leader who currently lives in Jerusalem.  Gil Pentzak is a native Israeli and Orthodox Jew who founded the Hebrew Language School, Ulpan Aviv.

Since the summer of 2013, after completing Ruth’s film ‘Between Heaven and Earth – Revealing God’s heart for His people Israel’, which featured Gil and his family, the two began to host special evenings in Jerusalem. 

These evenings were full of honest conversation, and songs both in English and Hebrew as Ruth and Gil sought to understand more about God’s role in their lives as Christian and Orthodox Jew respectively.  In 2015 they began to invite groups of Christians to come and take part in a week with them in Jerusalem, sharing their journey as Christian and Orthodox Jew through conversation and worship.

Jill Gower, Chair of the East Anglia Friends of Israel said: “Learning to walk alongside one another as Orthodox Jew and Christian is the aim, without any agenda to change one another, but rather to honour one another and learn from each other.  This is the plan for these few days in Norwich.

“We will be learning from the original scriptures, getting to know one another, and worshiping God together.  Only God knows all that He has given us to share with each other.  Extraordinary things are happening, and God is moving so powerfully.”

On Wednesday, March 15 there will be an open evening of conversation and worship open to everyone starting at 7pm.

A three day event will then take place from Thursday, March 16 – Saturday, March 18 with registration essential. The days will begin at 9.30am on Thursday and Friday until around 9.30pm.  On Saturday the day will begin at 12.30pm and continue until around 9pm.
Jill said: “Ruth and Gil have asked that those booking should be able to attend every session including meals so as to build relationship within the group.”

The cost is £50 plus the cost of three evening meals. Please bring a packed lunch or buy locally. Hot drinks will be provided.
