The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem will be honored Tuesday evening at a gala ceremony in Haifa in recognition of the funding and assistance it has provided to an assisted-living facility for impoverished Holocaust survivors, run by the Yad Ezer L'Haver charity.

The celebration will be attended by numerous dignitaries including Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger, Minister of Interior Eli Yishai, Minister for Welfare and Social Services Moshe Kahlon, opposition leader MK Tzipi Livni, and the ambassadors of Finland, Germany, Russia, Spain and the United States.

The ICEJ, a Christian Zionist organization founded in 1980, gave close to $1.5 million for the expansion and renovation of the facility, raised primarily from German donors, which will now be able to house more than 100 survivors, and includes medical and dental clinics. Non-resident Holocaust survivors living in the Haifa area will also be able to go to the center for meals and make use of the center’s services.
