Because of our strong relationship that dates back to when Lutherans sent missionaries to the Middle East, we have been intimately involved with the struggle for peace in Israel and the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza strip.

As with Christian concerns in other parts of the world, our denomination is working for peace, justice and human rights.
