“I have a tremendous love for Israel, and great admiration for the Israeli people. This is why I'm partnering with Israel's largest provider of humanitarian aid, and the premier organization building bridges between Christians and Jews, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.”
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.
I love the days the The Fellowship comes to visit. It brings me so much joy. Thank you so much for coming into my life and treating me with kindness and companionship in my old age.
I'm very grateful to The Fellowship for providing me with help,” Dolores says. “I am totally dependent on it. Without you I would have nothing to eat. My life would be impossible. The Fellowship is the only friend left in my life.
Thanks to The Fellowship we have food on the table. Without the monthly assistance, we would not be able to exist.
The Fellowship is a trusted non-profit with decades of experience supporting Jewish people in need – in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and around the world. Thanks to our faithful donors, we're able to fight poverty, provide security, and facilitate aliyah (immigration to Israel) through hundreds of lifesaving projects.
In 2021, The Fellowship reached a milestone year. Thanks to our supporters, we were able to reach more than 2 million Jewish people in need across the globe.
Here is a preview of how we helped:
80,000 soldiers provided with basic needs, comfort and care
918,000 children and families given food, medicine, clothing or financial assistance
More than 5,500 olim (immigrants) made aliyah (migrated to Israel)
800,000 people in more than 10 countries given access to secure Jewish synagogues, schools and communities through Fellowship-provided emergency equipment and mobile bomb shelters
