The Tower of David in Jerusalem
The Jewish Agency aids those in need and creates educational opportunities, transformative visits to Israel, and social change initiatives.

 

Each year, Christian Friends of The Jewish Agency (CFJA) introduces delegations of hundreds of Christian evangelicals to The Jewish Agency’s programs and activities. They learn how The Jewish Agency was instrumental in founding and building the State of Israel and how it continues to serve as the main link between the Jewish state and Jewish communities everywhere.

 

A glimpse into our efforts:

1) The violent crises in Ukraine and France have stretched and tested Israel's Aliyah infrastructure, with the number of Jews seeking to flee to Israel multiplying all the time. CFJA’s partner churches and organizations throughout North America, Africa, Europe (including Germany), China, and Korea are financially supporting the efforts of The Jewish Agency’s Aliyah and Absorption programs. Additionally, there are organizations of Christian friends who support our work on the ground in these countries – most notably in Ukraine – and work with us hand in hand.
 

2) CFJA supports Jewish Agency vocational training initiatives that teach marketable skills to new Ethiopian immigrants. The Jewish Agency also encourages the development of small businesses because they create jobs and are crucial to the economic life of any town.
 

3) Lone IDF Soldiers are Jews from around the world who have volunteered to risk their lives by serving the Israeli army – without the benefit of family living nearby who can offer them a home environment, warm meals, and hugs.  With their parents far away, we assist them before their service, during, and after, with long-term mentoring that in some cases lasts for six years.
 

4) Due to the recent increase in terror attacks in Israel, our Emergency Fund for the Victims of Terror has increased its activities. The Jewish Agency provides immediate funds for victims and their families, in the day or two after the attack. Additionally, for two years after, victims may also receive funds for long-term rehabilitation needs.
