Christian Zionists Want Equality with Jewish Groups

A pro-Israel Christian group that donates millions of dollars to Jewish Agency projects is seeking to be recognized with the same status as the United Jewish Communities and Keren HaYesod. American Jewish opposition is holding up an agreement whereby the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) would double its contributions to $45 million over the next three years.

The proposed agreement also calls for the group's Jewish founder and director to become a voting member of the Jewish Agency's executive board. IFCJ also wants its name posted alongside that of Jewish agencies on signs dedicating projects.
