Bishop Glenn Plummer, a prominent evangelical leader, loves Israel so much that he decided to move here.

Less than a month ago, he and his wife Pauline packed up all their worldly possessions and boarded a plane to Israel having just sold their home in Detroit.

“We see it as we’re making aliyah as non-Jews,” said Plummer, in a telephone conversation with Haaretz from his new home in Mevasseret Zion, a suburb of Jerusalem.
