My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for International Fellowship Of Christians & Jews, Chicago, IL, USA
I have been a financial contributing member of the IFCJ for 14 years and have a great love and respect for the Rabbi and now his daughter who has taken over as President of the IFCJ. They are loving and compassionate people. As a Messianic believer, I would not think of turning my back on the Jewish people in Israel, the FSU, or anywhere else simply because some people are not happy with the salaries of top people in this organization. I am sure that if any of these complainers had to work as hard as these IFCJ people do they would be demanding more money in their checks constantly. To these complainers, I say "Judge not, lest you be judged. For the measure with which you judge, you will also be judged." Yeshua's (Jesus') words, not mine. And these complainers also need to remember what Caspar ten Boom (Corrie ten Boom's father) said, "It is through the Jews that God chose to give us our Savior and our Bible." We owe God and the Jewish people so much more than the meager donations many of us can afford to give, I give not out of a desire to get something back, or to say "look at me" . But I give out of love for God and His chosen people the Jews who remain His children and the Apple of His Eye. May God bless the IFCJ, the workers at all levels, the Jewish people, and Israel our greatest ally in this world. I am now 70 yrs old, and as long as God give me life in this body, I will continue to be a faithful supporter of the IFCJ. What these workers earn are between them and our Heavenly Father. The important thing is that we remain willing and faithful supporters of God's Chosen people. They have gone through and continue to go through many more trials and hardships than we do or may ever have. This must be remembered, instead of judging the IFCJ in a bias manner as I have read so many reviews do. Give with compassion and an open heart for the Jewish people and the IFCJ.
Not complainingly or in a judgmental manner. "Be a cheerful giver".
