Backed by an outpouring of support from Christians across the United States, The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship), led by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, will immediately grant 4, 000 Israeli Shekels, or about $1, 034, to every individual or family injured in the ongoing wave of terrorist attacks against Israelis, the Fellowship announced today.

The aid will allow families who have been victimized in the current wave of stabbings, car attacks and shootings to pay for hospital transportation, the cost of therapists, psychologists and other medical care, as well as for lost workdays.

“The ongoing wave of terror leads to many causalities whose normal life paths have been abruptly interrupted. The victims and their families are faced with a new reality and difficult rehabilitation. Victims also face significant financial costs and we wish to support them as part of our commitment to the security of Israeli citizens during times of emergency, ” said Eckstein.

Eckstein underscored the emergency aid would not be possible without the help of Israel’s Christian allies. “We would like to thank the thousands of Christians supporters who are always there to help the citizens of Israel during difficult times, reminding us all that we are not alone, ” he said.

Christian friends of Israel in North America said they could not stand idly by as Israel gets hit with this latest wave of terror.

“The Jews are being murdered while too many leaders are standing idly by, ” said Fellowship donor Janet McKinney, of Dalton, Ga. “The Lord plainly says the nations who go against Israel will come under the wrath of the Lord. Other Innocent people, in other nations, who stand with Israel will also suffer at the hand of the poor choices those leaders make when they do not stand with Israel.”

The International Fellowship of Christian and Jews is Israel’s largest philanthropic organization. In recent years, the Fellowship has stood at the forefront of confronting civil emergencies, and has invested tens of millions of dollars to strengthen rescue services, hospitals, shelters, and direct aid to civilians.

As part of its emergency support in Israel, the Fellowship has renovated over 5, 500 bomb shelters, founded more than 50 emergency centers in local municipalities, helped increase security for hospitals, contributed seven MRI devices and life-saving trauma equipment to hospitals, and more.
