International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

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.

By now we’re sure you’ve heard of the selfie fad sweeping social media that has everyone from kids to celebrities jumping in on the fun. This trend got The Fellowship wondering what it would look like if instead of putting the focus on ourselves the trend began to focus on the needs of others. We invite you to join us in our quest to reinvent the selfie and celebrate selflessness. We will be sharing images of people who help make the lives of others better as well as those whose lives are forever changed by actions of love, kindness, and generosity. #selfie #unselfie
