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.

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: The cold winter weather is not over just yet in Israel, so Fellowship volunteers are delivering 5,000 warm winter blankets to vulnerable populations of seniors struggling to survive on small government stipends.

With the recent publication of an outrageously anti-Israel study guide by the Presbyterian Church (USA), it is clear that this denomination needs to stop discussing divestment from Israel, and start divesting itself of those whose views on Israel and Jews lie far outside the bounds of fair and reasonable dialogue.

Yana’s family moved to Israel because the medical care needed to treat her father’s cancer was not available in the Ukraine. Not only does her father receive proper medical care in their new home, butYana is able to live openly as a Jew for the first time in her life. “Thank you so much,” she says to The Fellowship’s supporters. “I couldn’t have moved here without you.” http://bit.ly/1bMK3Rt
