Welcome to the Pastor's Library
On behalf of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, I welcome you, as a ministry partner, to our Pastor's Library.
It is our hope that through the Pastor's Library, we can provide you with educational resources that will build bridges of understanding about the Jewish roots of Christianity and deepen the spiritual bonds between us.
We have prepared downloadable Bible studies, church bulletin inserts, video teaching illustrations, and and materials for children, including PowerPoints presentations, activity pages, and Sunday school lessons. I believe these study materials will deeply enrich your spiritual life as you reflect on how God miraculously works in the lives of His people.
You can use these materials in your church worship service, Bible study groups, small group studies, or other adult education settings. I encourage you to use and share these educational tools so they might be a blessing for all. It is my prayer that these biblical teaching tools will be an encouragement and inspiration to you as we celebrate together God’s love and care for all His people.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

Hanukkah, also known as the "Festival of Lights," is one of the most well known Jewish holidays. While not a holiday found in the Jewish Bible, or Old Testament, Hanukkah has many important spiritual themes, such as the importance of preserving our religious freedom, rededicating ourselves to God, and standing up against the culture for our values.
