About IFCJ Canada
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews® of Canada is a registered Canadian non-profit. Our charitable registration number is 86941 1587 RR0001.
Our mission is to foster better relations and understanding between Christians and Jews; encourage greater cooperation between both communities on issues of shared biblical concern; and support Israel and Jews in crises or need.
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® of Canada carries out its bridge-building work.
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews® of Canada was founded by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein to promote greater understanding between Jews and Christians and to build Christian support for Israel and other shared concerns. Like its sister organization in the U.S., the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews® of 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.
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.
The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews® of Canada is committed to honestly and accurately presenting our friends with the opportunities and challenges faced in this ministry.
