The Israel Summit, billed as "the first annual gathering of pro-Israel supporters who unconditionally support Israel’s right to be sovereign in the entirety of the land of Israel, including Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and the Gaza Strip," begins Monday in Tennessee after more than a week of controversy caused by anti-Israel threats to the gathering.

Nashville's Sonesta Airport Hotel had canceled the summit, citing police security concerns for the safety of the guests. But after personal finance expert Dave Ramsey offered another venue in Franklin, Tennessee, south of Nashville, sponsors including HaYovel, Israel365, and The Israel Guys Podcast announced that the summit would continue.

The safety and well-being of Sonesta’s team and guests is its top priority. While Sonesta determined it was unable to host the HaYovel event due to security concerns, Sonesta sincerely apologizes for the difficulty that this decision has caused HaYovel and its Nashville event attendees."
