The good work of The Fellowship continues amid a global pandemic still impacting the everyday life of Jews in Israel and throughout the world. Writers at the Jerusalem Post tell us more:

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship) and the Labor and Social Services Ministry collaborated to set up emergency funds in 140 municipalities across Israel to help cope with the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Totaling $1.74 million, these funds will help the local welfare departments bring immediate financial aid to families and the elderly who are suffering from coronavirus restrictions. This aid will cover medicine, food, clothes, basic furniture and essential appliances.
