The Jewish Agency is expelling a Christian Zionist volunteer organization from its education facility for Jewish immigrants in northern Israel, after it said the group’s media posts implied they were proselytizing the newcomers.

The Agency is demanding an “immediate termination” of the agreement that permitted the Christian volunteers from overseas to live and work on the campus at Bikat Kinarot in the Galilee.
