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.

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews is proud to announce that yesterday, in partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), there was a covert mission that brought 17 Yemenite Jews to Israel, where they are finally safe and reunited with family. We couldn’t be more appreciative to our faithful donors who made this and countless other operations – both overt and covert – possible. Since 2009, we have helped bring 151 Yemeni Jews to safety in Israel, and we will continue to support efforts to bring Jews in danger throughout the world home to the Holy Land. (photo: Moshik Brin)

Six-year-old Anya’s heart condition makes her weak and severely limits what she’s able to do. However, the caring support she receives thanks to The Fellowship and our supporters helps keep Anya smiling.

Yael Eckstein visits the Ukraine to bring much needed aid on Flickr.

This January, Yael traveled through feet of snow and freezing temperatures in the remote villages of the former Soviet Union, searching out Jews in need. She found many Holocaust survivors who have been lost and abandoned and are living in run down homes without food or heat.

Ethiopian Sigd Holiday - 2012 on Flickr.

Earlier this month, members of the Ethiopian Jewish community in Israel celebrated Sigd, a holiday unique to Ethiopian Jews that honors the renewal of the alliance between the people, God, and the Torah. Sigd, which always falls 50 days after Yom Kippur, is a time for the Ethiopian Jews to examine their hearts and amend any behaviors not pleasing to God. To read more about this holiday, visit:
