IFCJ gives food vouchers for needy Muslims The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews will distribute food vouchers totaling NIS 1.2 million to some 3,300 needy Muslim families in Israel ahead of Ramadan, which begins next week. The contribution will be made through the welfare departments of 69 municipalities that collaborate on a regular basis with the fellowship, headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. “During Jewish holidays, Israel is immersed in a sea of mutual support and mobilization for disadvantaged groups,” Eckstein said. “Minorities living in Israel also deserve the same support from society.”

This year, the fellowship has contributed aid in the amount of some NIS 20m. to disadvantaged populations in Arab communities and it currently operates summer camps for 3,000 children in the Arab sector. The organization’s total contribution to the Arab sector in recent years amounts to over NIS 100m.
