Personal finance specialist Dave Ramsey has agreed to provide a new Nashville venue for a pro-Israel group whose reservations for a gathering at the Sonesta Airport Hotel, planned for May 20-22, were canceled due to threats from anti-Israel protesters, according to a report in The Daily Wire.

Josh Waller, co-host of the Israel Guys podcast and one of the co-sponsors of The Israel Summit, said attendance for the event has risen dramatically since the hotel blocked the group last week.

“All of the details have come together and the event is skyrocketing in numbers," Waller said. Instead of 500 attendees, the sponsors are now planning for 2,000 people to come and show their support for Israel.

Waller explained, “Dave Ramsey reached out and said, ‘You’re going to have it at my place and we’re going to take this event to a whole new level and make it 10x what it was before.’”

CBN News has been giving significant coverage of the controversy this week, linked here.

A spokesperson with Sonesta Nashville Airport Hotel confirmed to CBN News the event was canceled due to concerns over guests and hotel staff's safety. 

“At Sonesta, the safety and wellbeing of our team and guests is our top priority. After thorough consideration, we determined that proceeding with the event presented a considerable risk to the safety of our team, our guests and those attending the event given heightened security concerns. We therefore informed the meeting organizer that our property could no longer host the event. We apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused," the spokesperson wrote in an emailed statement.
