JERUSALEM—As the largest delegation of African Americans to Israel begins a tour of the Holy Land this week, the deeper significance of their presence in the country isn’t simply the numbers.

“It is a connection of not just our church, but Black America” to Israel, Glenn Plummer – the Church of God in Christ bishop to Israel – told ALL ISRAEL NEWS on Monday.

Plummer and his wife Ruth Pauline Plummer, Ph.D., hosted a ceremony at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to welcome COGIC Presiding Bishop J. Drew Sheard and First Lady Karen Sheard – a Grammy Award winner – to Israel.
