Reported: 19:19 PM - Jul/01/09
(IsraelNN.com) The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) is joining forces with Na'amat, Emunah and WIZO to contribute to the construction of 51 playgrounds at 22 day care centers in Israel, JPost reported. The IFCJ committed NIS 1.4 million toward the project.
"[We] are happy to have the opportunity to contribute to the children of Israel. The Fellowship will continue to initiate partnerships which will strengthen Israeli society," said IFCJ founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. He said the IFCJ chose to sponsor playgrounds because they promote healthy development. The IFCJ annually donates close to $60 million to Israeli causes, particularly to poor neighborhoods that lack adequate infrastructure. It is funded by donations from pro-Israel Evangelical Christians.
