NEW APP WILL STREAM ISRAEL NEWS, STORIES AND EVENTS TO MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS WORLDWIDE
CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2017 – A new streaming app for smart phones, tablets, and TVs brings stories from the Holy Land to Israel supporters around the world, with new daily content from the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship).
Available today, the IFCJ.tv app now provides anytime, anywhere, on-demand access for The Fellowship’s 1.6 million donors located in 78 percent of U.S. zip codes, and also to the billions of people worldwide with in-home and mobile devices that can download the IFCJ.tv app. All users are immediately able to watch, listen, and read all shows, articles and devotionals for free.
This unprecedented access enables people worldwide to learn about Israel’s biblical, historical, and contemporary life, culture and faith; discover the Jewish roots of Christianity; and fight anti-Semitism, religious persecution and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement against Israel.
