Jews from across the world have benefited through the organization and its founder, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein has made a difference to many lives. Apart from the help rendered to a lot of Jewish people, the organization has also been helpful in building bridges between the community and Christians.
It has mainly been possible again due to the untiring efforts of its founder, the Rabbi. As such, it is one of the top 400 non-profit organizations of the US and raises a substantial sum of money from its Christian donors. Some other important highlights of the organization are also mentioned here.

There are more than 175 million active Christian donors with it that make all the difference. the scale on which the organization operates is massive and that is the reason why it is able to reach and help many Jews in distress. At times, its Christian donor’s background also becomes a bane but that aspect is very well-handled by the organization.
- The Rabbi has known his country and Israel for long – The ex-chief and founder of IFCJ have known Israel and the US for a pretty long time and that is the reason why he is able to mobilize support for the Jewish cause.
