Leaders of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus and the World Jewish Congress will travel to St. Petersburg, Russia, Friday to meet with local Christian leaders at what is expected to be the largest pro- Israel event in the city’s history.

The delegation will promote Judeo-Christian relations and aims to build support for Israel among Christians in Russia.

The event, hosted by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem St. Petersburg branch, is expected to be attended by more than 400 people.

Keynote speakers will include Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel, MK Anastasia Michaeli, WJC secretary-general Dan Diker and Knesset Christian Allies Caucus director Josh Reinstein.
