Seminars and Speaking Engagements
Ariel Ben Ami, executive director of Catholics for Israel, is occasionally available for a limited number of speaking engagements. Invite Ariel to your parish, conference, retreat, or study group and have him:
- share about his journey of faith and experience as a Catholic living in Israel;
- teach on the Jewish roots of the Catholic faith;
- lead a Bible study;
- deliver a multi-media presentation;
- lead you into Hebrew-Christian praise and worship.
These talks are generally given within the Church’s mission of evangelization, catechesis and renewal, for the purpose of fostering among Catholics and non-Catholics a greater understanding and deeper love for our faith.
