Interfaith Group Cares For Jewish Children

An interfaith group of both Christians and Jews has raised millions of dollars in order to care for destitute Jewish children in the former Soviet Union.

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency) The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews will give $12 million to help care for thousands of destitute Jewish children in the former Soviet Union.

The gift to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, given by the fellowship and its president and founder Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, will help JDC expand its programs to help an estimated 50,000 Jewish children who need food, medicine and shelter, the JDC said in a press release Thursday.

It good to see groups of differing faiths come together in order to help out needy children. If only we could get the Muslims involved in something similar...
