The Friends of Israel, a worldwide Christian ministry communicating biblical truth about Israel and the Messiah, was founded in 1938 by Christian leaders in response to the desperate needs of Jewish people afflicted by the raging torrents of Nazi hate during the Holocaust. Through this Christian ministry, funds were raised and aid was distributed to Jewish refugees in their darkest hours of need. Today, The Friends of Israel is an important evangelical Christian voice communicating biblical truth about Israel and the Messiah, while fostering solidarity with the Jewish people.
The Friends of Israel keeps up with headlines about Israel and the Israeli people and features the latest news through its website, in its publications and during its annual conferences.
