George W. Bush to Headline Fundraiser for Texas Proselytizing Group

The event will raise funds for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, which aims to lead Jews to 'Yeshua the Messiah.'

Former President George W. Bush will headline a fundraiser in Texas for a group that seeks to convert Jews to Christianity.

Bush is scheduled to appear Nov. 14 in suburban Dallas to raise funds for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, a Texas-based group that says its mission “is to bring Jewish people into a personal relationship of faith with Yeshua the Messiah, knowing their acceptance will eventually mean life from the dead.”

Tickets for the event at the Irving Convention Center start at $250 and rise to as high as $100,000.

According to Mother Jones, which first reported the fundraiser, the $100,000 tickets include a VIP reception with Bush and a tour of Israel guided by the institute’s president, Wayne Wilks.
