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.
