Benjamin Netanyahu

Prime Minister, State of Israel

"

We deeply appreciate your dedication and consistent support, and commend your outstanding efforts.

"

Ariel Sharon (Deceased)

Former Prime Minister, State of Israel

"I commend you for your tireless and long-standing efforts to mobilize support for the State of Israel and build bridges of understanding and solidarity between Christians and Jews. The special recognition which you personally received from the Israeli authorities is further evidence of the crucial role you and your organization have played in encouraging inter-faith dialogue and advancing pro-Israel causes."

Shimon Peres (Deceased)

Former President, State of Israel

"

May I say that your personal involvement and the commitment shown by the IFCJ is indeed a model for emulation. I seize this opportunity to thank you in this period of strife, as well as all of Israel's steadfast friends across the world, for the encouragement, support and significant contribution to the well-being of the State of Israel and its people that you have shown.

"

Yuli Edelstein

Speaker of the Knesset, State of Israel

"Your role in Operation Exodus has been of immeasurable help. You have joined us in helping Jews from the FSU renew their Jewish identity and rejoin their own people in Israel. We know that the IFCJ's On Wings of Eagles asks Christians to open their hearts and offer their assistance in the spirit of brotherhood. In that same spirit, please accept our thanks and gratitude for your steadfast and continuous support."

Roni Bar-On

Former Finance Minister, State of Israel

"This is a very exciting project which has a positive effect on the security of Israel's residents in the North. One thousand and seven hundred shelters were renovated to a very high level and standard. This is a big step forward for the security and well-being of the residents. These people have suffered from bombings and shellings for 25 years. Although we hope that there won't be a need for the residents to use these shelters, their lives are now more secure. On behalf of the State of Israel, the Ministry of Defense, and the citizens of Israel, I want to thank Rabbi Eckstein and the IFCJ for the security you bring to Israel."

Ehud Barak

Former Prime Minister, State of Israel

"This is a very exciting project which has a positive effect on the security of Israel's residents in the North. One thousand and seven hundred shelters were renovated to a very high level and standard. This is a big step forward for the security and well-being of the residents. These people have suffered from bombings and shellings for 25 years. Although we hope that there won't be a need for the residents to use these shelters, their lives are now more secure.

Limor Livnat

Former Minister of Education, State of Israel

"Feelings of respect and admiration accompany the IFCJ since its establishment; its contribution to Israel is an integral part of our history. The cooperation between Jews and Christians who support Israel adds rejuvenation and forms an additional link in the chain of the Zionist enterprise."

Daniel Ayalon

Former Ambassador to the United States, State of Israel

"The Fellowship is one of the greatest organizations I have ever known. It is great to see Christians and Jews in solidarity. I am speechless that so many evangelical Christians are not afraid to say the truth, keep the faith, and know that the State of Israel has always belonged to the Jewish people and that it always will. I am grateful for your faith and conviction."
