The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews will give the Jewish Agency for Israel $15 million per year for the next three years.
The Jewish Agency made the announcement Wednesday, adding that the fellowship will be able to appoint members to the agencys lay leadership boards.
Torah-true Jews feel that these Christians' sympathy is misplaced. They are putting their resources into helping Jews immigrate to and maintain the Zionist state, a battlefield where many Jews have lost their lives. Traditional Jews believe in the Talmudic teaching that one should not "put all the eggs in one basket." G-d did the Jewish people a kindness when He scattered them around the world; bringing all Jews to one place only endangers them and is no blessing.
The often-quoted verse, "And I will bless those who bless you" (Genesis 12:3), means that all people in the world should bless and befriend the Jews if they want to earn G-d's favor. Historically, those gentiles who welcomed Jews into their country and allowed them freedom to practice the Torah and full rights were considered friends of the Jews. Anti-Semites were those who expelled Jews from their country and wanted them elsewhere. Gentiles who wish to merit G-d's blessing are encouraged to continue being good neighbors to the Jews in their home countries, not send them off to the State of Israel.
