International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

Misunderstanding and prejudice between Jews and Christians remain today, in large part, due to a lack of communication between the two groups. This is particularly true in Jewish relations with Evangelicals. Issues inevitably arise that create tension and ill will between the communities. In addition, many opportunities for inter-religious cooperation through joint programs on behalf of shared concerns are lost due to this lack of communication. It is against such a 2,000-year backdrop of fear, ignorance and mistrust that the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews carries out its bridge-building work.

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews was founded in 1983 to promote greater understanding between Jews and Christians and to build Christian support for Israel and other shared concerns. Based in Chicago, under the leadership of its founder and president, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, the Fellowship is governed by a national Board of Directors comprised of leading Christians and Jews

Our Vision is that Christians and Jews would reverse their 2,000-year history of discord and replace it with a relationship marked by dialogue, better understanding, respect, fellowship, and active cooperation on issues of common concern. OUR MISSION to foster better relations and understanding between Christians and Jews, help build support for Israel, and cooperate in building a more moral society through open dialogue, education, and sensitization of people of faith around the world. OUR MOTTO Cooperate whenever possible, Oppose whenever necessary, And teach and sensitize at all times.
