Keepers of the Gate: Not for Women Only
Associate Keepers of the Gate began in 2005 on a Center for Emergency Medicine mission in Jerusalem. A small group of Associate leaders had been kicking around the idea of opening the Keepers of the Gate annual giving program to Associates. Joel Marks, National Associates Liaison to Keepers of the Gate, says, "That Sunday morning, at a breakfast for Associates at the hotel, on an impulse we jumped up and asked, 'Who will join us and become an Associate Keeper of the Gate?' It was just amazing to see 14 men immediately say yes. Hugs, smiles, and checks were everywhere—and Associate Keepers of the Gate was born." Today there are almost 200 Associate Keepers of the Gate.
