Our mission: to promote understanding and cooperation between Jews and Christians and to build broad support for Israel and other shared concerns.
Our vision is that Jews and Christians will reverse their 2,000-year history of discord and replace it with a relationship marked by dialogue, understanding, respect and cooperation. The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has raised nearly half a billion dollars since its establishment in 1983 for Jewish immigration, resettlement and social welfare programs in Israel and has provided funding for food, housing and social services for needy Jews in the former Soviet Union. Based in Chicago and Jerusalem, The Fellowship operates under the leadership of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, and is governed by an independent board of directors, people from both faith groups who share our strong belief in building bridges between the Christian and Jewish communities.
