Welcome to The Fellowship Family
Yael Eckstein, President and CEO of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews
Shalom from the Holy Land
Shalom, and welcome to our Fellowship Family! Thank you for your support – it’s your support that makes The Fellowship something more than just an organization. Together, we are a community, a ministry, and a family.
And as a part of this family, you are partnering with and ministering to God’s people – across the globe, in Ukraine and the former Soviet Union, and in the Holy Land of Israel.
Coming to you from the Holy Land, Yael Eckstein would like to personally welcome you and thank you for joining us in the ministry of blessing God’s people.
Blessing God’s People
God promised in Genesis 12:3 that He will bless those who bless His people, Israel. That is what The Fellowship has been called to do – blessing the Jewish people on behalf of people of faith like you. And that is what, together, we continue to do.
As people of faith – Christians and Jews – we called to do God’s holy work together. For the first time in history, our faiths are building bridges of fellowship and working together. And now you have joined us in this work, in showing God’s people that they are loved, that they are not alone, that they are blessed.
You’re Making an Impact
This holy work that you allow us to carry out does just that – tangibly blesses Jewish people. The Fellowship provides lifesaving aid each year to millions of Jewish people.
We feed and clothe the needy – the elderly, Holocaust survivors, orphans, struggling families. We provide safety and security for Jewish people facing violence and terror, be it in the Holy Land, in Ukraine and the former Soviet Union, or elsewhere. And we bring thousands of God’s people home on aliyah flights to their biblical homeland, Israel.
