Donor Reviews

We started giving to The Fellowship around 16 years ago. I was watching a TV program, and The Fellowship came on, telling stories about the orphans and elderly they were supporting in Israel. I called immediately and began giving. Now we give monthly, some gifts bigger, some smaller – but the Lord has certainly tied us in with The Fellowship, and it’s been a huge blessing to our family.

Thirty years ago I found a brochure from The Fellowship. At the time I thought, “I’m giving to many other ministries, but this one is specifically calling out to me.” As the years went on, there was a yearning in my heart to give to Israel and to support the Jews. I’ve been giving to the ministry ever since. I’m African American, and I’m not supporting due to skin color or race, but because of a similar struggle that we faced like the Jewish people.

I’ve discovered in the past couple of years that my purpose is to support The Fellowship, to help feed and take care of the Jewish people in Israel. I feel that’s my job. We as Christians have a calling on this earth that we’re supposed to do. I have to say that because I’ve been doing my job of supporting the Jewish people I’ve been kept safe during this time.

Beneficiary Reviews

We want to thank The Fellowship and its staff and donors for giving us all the assistance necessary to start a new life in Israel. We look forward to all the good we believe is awaiting us in our new country.

I’m alone by myself all day. I don’t go out. I don’t know what I’ll do on Passover. I may have to be here alone. I want to thank you for coming and bringing me this food. It’s saving me.

I would like to thank The Fellowship staff for doing such important work, especially during the time of the coronavirus crisis. We felt that the people who determined which products to pack thought of the needs of the elderly. Both the amount and the variety of the products were so correct.

Employee Reviews

Since early 2019, the org has been rapidly transforming to have better technology and leadership. I genuinely enjoy the people who I work with every day and am happy to support its mission.

Our work is very meaningful. Knowing you are feeding the poor and helping the vulnerable by doing your job is something we all hold onto. We’re a family at IFCJ. We support each other and genuinely care about each other. We have a strategic 5-year plan for the first time and there is a plan to actually accomplish it. It’s just a top-notch place to work right now.

A great place to work, with fantastic people, great benefits and a worthy cause!
