Dear Friends,

When I think about The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry (FOI), I don’t think of an organization, I think of people like you who love Israel and want to bless the Jewish people. You are a friend of Israel.

Help a Jewish Person Return Home

Aliyah Return Fund

Israel is preparing for an influx of more than 250,000 Jewish people returning to the Land in the next 3-5 years. Most are desperate to leave situations of poverty and extreme anti-Semitic persecution in countries like Ethiopia and Ukraine. We can see how the Lord is gathering His people as more and more people make Aliyah (immigrate) to Israel each year. You can be part of God’s plan to rescue the Jewish people and bring them home, help them learn Hebrew, find a home or school, receive job training, and integrate into Israeli society.

Overcoming Anti-Semitism

Living Bridges Program

Anti-Semitism is growing exponentially in Europe, even in Poland, where many Jewish people died in death camps during the Holocaust. Living Bridges is a unique program that builds relationships between Israeli and Polish youth. For several weeks, Christian youth in Poland and Jewish young adults from Israel come together—first in one country, then in the other. They spend time learning about one another’s culture and history, and work together on a shared service project for children with disabilities. Barriers are broken and lifelong friendships are created through mutual understanding and relationship-building. You can stem the tide of anti-Semitism in Eastern Europe today by sponsoring these intersections between Christians and our Jewish friends.

Save a Life

Medical Care

Nearly 100 sick and injured people, desperate for good medical care, cross our clinic's threshold every day. Many people cannot afford the high cost for even basic medical care. At the clinic, every person receives individual treatment by a certified nurse or physician, or is transported to a major hospital for intensive care. No patient leaves without being offered spiritual support. Your gift today will cover basic medical care for one patient. With your gift of $50, you make a difference for one person who receives the medical treatment they desperately need.

Open the Word for Seekers in Eastern Europe

Holiday With the Bible

Believers and seekers, both Jewish and secular, from Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Poland come together throughout the summer months to learn about the Bible, study, and enjoy fellowship. For many, it is the first time they have ever held a Bible in their hands. You can give a Bible to each participant and help them answer God's call.

Launch a Worker for Christ

North American Mission Launch

Exhilarating, sobering, challenging, and yes, daunting are a few of the emotions felt on a journey to serve in full-time ministry with The Friends of Israel. We call it a blessing, and that is what you will receive when you make any part of that journey a reality for one person called by the Lord into Jewish ministry. Your gift will equip, train, and prepare new field workers for serving the Jewish community in your neighborhood and teaching in your church. You can be the one who launches the next FOI worker whose impact for the Lord knows no bounds!

Give Now
Open New Mission Fields

International Mission Launch

Just in the last year, thanks to your support, two new field workers began ministry in Israel, and a new field worker joined FOI serving Ukraine. We need your help to raise up new workers as the Lord calls each one. Your support will equip a new international worker with the tools they need to transition into full-time ministry building and ministering to the Jewish people in spiritual and physical need. You can help launch a new worker through the International Mission Launch Initiative today and watch it bear fruit for eternity.

Sponsor a Gift Basket

Holiday Baskets

A small gesture of love can go a long way! Every year, Friends of Israel workers around the world prepare and hand-deliver thousands of gift baskets for Hanukkah and other Jewish holidays to our Jewish friends. Delighted to receive a basket of delicious and thoughtful goodies, the recipients are often overwhelmed by this act of kindness. When you sponsor a basket, you are making a special moment possible. You are sharing the love of the Messiah and showing that it is that love which compels us to remember our Jewish friends during their important holiday season. You can put a smile on someone’s face by sponsoring a gift basket today.

Be the Hands and Feet of Christ in Israel

Ministry Trips to Israel

Volunteers from across America come together on our ministry trips to Israel to serve the Jewish people. This immersive experience ingrains the significance of the Jewish people into the hearts of the volunteers—and ingrains the significance of Christian love into the hearts of Israelis. When you help sponsor one volunteer, you are sending the love of the Messiah directly to the Jewish people.

Encountering Judaism

Ministry Launch Programs

There is no better way to learn about the Jewish people than by encountering them in everyday life. Your donation provides an encounter with Jewish people for a person interested in future service to the Jewish people. This experience includes touring an Orthodox synagogue, spending a Shabbat evening with a Jewish family, and hearing a lecture given by a member of the Jewish community. Paired with a unique internship program, Bridges allows young adults to serve actively in the Jewish community. Your gift to this program will help mentor and shape interns whom God might call into full-time ministry with The Friends of Israel. Please consider a gift to help these potential workers encounter Judaism and ministry first-hand.

Comfort My People

Elderly Care Fund

The late years in life can be the loneliest time. Spending time and helping an elderly person is a blessing and the perfect way to demonstrate Christ’s love. You help form unique friendships with these precious people by supporting the Elderly Care Fund. Through your support, you send workers to spend time with our elderly friends near and far. You bring them food, medicine, help transport them to doctor appointments, assist them with small projects around the house, and give them spiritual support. Please help provide life-giving support through medicine, food, and love to our elderly Jewish friends worldwide.

Give Hope on Campuses

Campus Ministry

Do you remember your days on the mall of your college campus? Today, students are denying Christ in an effort to express themselves. That’s why we have made it a priority to reach young adults on their own turf in multiple ways. Maybe you can’t make it to your alma mater to share God’s truth, but you can help to spread truth and the love of Messiah in the harsh spiritual climate of academia. When you give to FOI’s campus ministry, you are opening hearts and leading a new generation to life in Christ.

Be a Peacemaker

Thank God for Israel Day

Common ground enables all of us to see beyond our differences and embrace our similarities. Jesus calls all of us to be peacemakers. You are a peacemaker when you support the intersection of Christian and Jewish communities at Thank God for Israel events. You provide an opportunity to build bridges connecting churches and synagogues in a show of support for Israel. You make it possible to connect people who may not otherwise be connected—all in an effort to build understanding, common ground, and peace between Christian and Jewish people.

Save a Life in Israel

Israel Relief Fund

When missiles and mortars rain down on Israel and citizens have 10-15 seconds to find shelter, you protect thousands of people from destruction in bomb shelters. When a mother fears she cannot keep the baby growing in her womb, you encourage her to save her child’s life from needless abortion. When a drug addict lies helpless in the streets of Tel Aviv, thirsty, dirty, and desperate for a Savior, you minister to him. When a child is so hungry they cannot concentrate in school, you feed them. When a Lone Soldier in the Israel Defense Forces has nowhere to go for the Sabbath rest, you give him a family. And when a woman is desperate to escape the abuse of her husband, you give her sanctuary. When you give to the Israel Relief Fund, you are tangibly and directly serving the least of these in Israel.

Bless a Holocaust Survivor

Holocaust Care Fund

Around the world, Holocaust survivors are forgotten, impoverished, and suffering. It can be difficult for them to do basic tasks on their own, and the global pandemic has only increased their fear and reminded them of days they were hungry, cold, and unable to escape their suffering. You can be a hero to a Holocaust survivor and their family today. Your support delivers food, clothes, medicine, eye glasses, coats, cleaning supplies, and much needed spiritual support.
