Description:

“The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, begun in 1983 as an effort to promote better understanding and cooperation between Christians and Jews, is today the largest and most trusted organization in the world supporting Israel and helping her people, and the largest philanthropy in the Holy Land.

Led by its founder and president Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Fellowship provides humanitarian aid to the needy in Israel and in Jewish communities around the world, promotes prayer and security on behalf of the Jewish state, and builds bridges of understanding between Christians and Jews…

The Fellowship has provided humanitarian aid to millions of people in more than 20 countries, and its robust communications network—including teaching, television and radio programs, and web contacts—reaches many millions more in some 100 countries each day, creating an enormous groundswell of aid and good will.”

Mission:

“The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews was founded in 1983 to promote understanding and cooperation between Jews and Christians and to build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns. Our vision is that Jews and Christians will reverse their 2,000-year history of discord and replace it with a relationship marked by dialogue, understanding, respect and cooperation.

Based in Chicago and Jerusalem, The Fellowship operates under the leadership of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, and is governed by an independent board of directors, people from both faith groups who share our strong belief in building bridges between the Christian and Jewish communities.”
