The Fellowship to Donate Emergency Command Center Vehicle to Jerusalem

city of Jerusalem

The Fellowship will be providing Jerusalem with an Emergency Command Center vehicle that will assist the city during emergency situations that require immediate and coordinated responses, such as war, snowstorms, fires, and the current wave of terror attacks that have hit the city.

In response to this announcement, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said,

"I would like to thank Rabbi Eckstein and the IFCJ's hundreds of thousands of donors throughout the world, who steadfastly stand with Jerusalem in times of need, helping us protect Israel’s national and municipal home fronts.

“During the current wave of violence that we are experiencing, the help is in the form of a mobile command center that will enable the City to provide real-time responses during emergencies and crisis situations when the speed and efficiency of the response is critical. This unit will provide yet an additional layer to the Jerusalem Municipality’s 24/7 efforts to protect the welfare and safety of all its residents.

“The city of Jerusalem is often called upon to manage fast-moving events that demand quick and coordinated relief efforts. For this reason, the Municipality requested a mobile command center which will go a long way in ensuring effective management during crises and emergency events."

Rabbi Eckstein added:

"The Fellowship is at the forefront of those who seek to safeguard the welfare and security of Jerusalem’s residents. When we began our operations in Israel fifteen years ago, Jerusalem was under daily terror attacks. Since that day The Fellowship has worked tirelessly to bolster Israel and the city of Jerusalem’s rescue and medical services with life-saving equipment and emergency vehicles. 

“I am proud to represent hundreds of thousands of Christian donors throughout the world who continually remind Israelis that they are not alone and who support the country during its most difficult hours."
