About The Fellowship
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews was founded in 1983 by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein to promote understanding between Jews and Christians and to build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns. Now celebrating our 25th year of lifesaving ministry, 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, respect and cooperation.
A 25-Year History of Helping
The Fellowship's success has far exceeded expectations. Over the years, we have been leaders in Jewish-Christian relations, building bridges of goodwill that have led to greater understanding and cooperation between members of these two great faiths. We have helped hundreds of thousands of Jews escape poverty and anti-Semitism and return to their biblical homeland, funded humanitarian assistance that has touched the lives of millions of Jews in Israel and around the world, provided life-giving aid to Israel’s victims of war and terror, and much more.

The largest and deadliest fire in Israel's history has devastated northern Israel. Forty-two people have been killed. Seventeen thousand fled their homes, and thousands of acres of forest have been reduced to ashes.
The Fellowship has and will continue to be on the ground in fire-ravaged areas filling immediate needs and offering long-term assistance. Though the fire has been contained, the need is as critical as ever. Please help us continue to provide aid to Israel's people in their time of need.
