About IFCJ Canada
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada is a leading Canadian religious charity building bridges between Christians and Jews, blessing Israel and the Jewish people around the world with humanitarian care and life-saving aid.
The vision of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada 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 shared concern. This vision is being fulfilled through our programs of compassion and solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people.
A History of Helping
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews of Canada (IFCJ Canada) was founded in 2003 by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein to increase The Fellowship’s reach and support. Like its sister organization in the U.S., IFCJ Canada operates under the leadership of Yael Eckstein and is governed by an independent Board of Directors representing both faiths who share our strong belief in building bridges between the Christian and Jewish communities.
Over the years, we have been leaders in Jewish-Christian relations, building bridges of goodwill that have led to greater understanding and cooperation between members of these two great faiths. We have helped hundreds of thousands of Jews escape poverty and anti-Semitism and return to their biblical homeland, funded humanitarian assistance that has touched the lives of millions of Jews in Israel and around the world, and much more.
