More than 1000 Christian families in Israel will receive a boost this Christmas when the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) distributes food vouchers to brighten up the holidays.

Reaching the sum of NIS 380,000, the IFCJ, headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, will distribute the aid to needy Christian Arab families via social welfare departments in Akko, Nazareth, Kfar Yassif and Shfaram.

“We are delighted to distribute this in time for Christmas in order to help hundreds of families enjoy the holiday,” said Eckstein. “This contribution represents our commitment to strengthening the relationship between Christians and Jews and supporting Israeli society by strengthening all its populations.”

The IFCJ contributes to all sectors in Israel, including in the Arab community where it runs some 70 social welfare projects. The non-profit, which raises funds from US-based Christians supportive of the State of Israel, has dedicated more than NIS 11 million to such projects this year.
