Pastor Salim

In a video posted on X, formerly Twitter, Israeli social-media influencer Hananya Naftali highlights the work of Pastor Salim, an Arab who grew up hating Israel before he converted to Christianity. During lockdown his church delivered food parcels to needy families and he surprised the Jewish mayor of Nazareth by ensuring they also had crates of matzot (unleavened bread) so they could properly celebrate Passover.
