Bridging the Gap Between Jews and Christians

While many Christians in the United States and around the world stand for Israel and pray for the Jewish people, The Christian Times' CB Condez writes that The Fellowship continues to work at building bridges between the two faiths:

Eckstein, meanwhile, shared that there has been great improvement in the relationship between Jews and Christians.

"The Jewish world is learning that a Christian can love Israel without wanting to missionize or convert Jews," she said. "We are finally at the point where Jewish organizations say they are willing to accept donations from the Fellowship, but we really need to do more."

She did say that there is a need to reach out in return to the Christian Zionists who are supportive of the cause, as "they are a strategic partner in Israel's future, if we are to have a future in the Mideast."
