ICEJ Report

Prince of Peace

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever." (Isaiah 9:6-7)

The prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus, who would be called 'The Prince of Peace', who will establish His Kingdom and bring “Peace on Earth!” In fact, it will be peace with NO END!

So, whatever trial and difficulty is happening in your life in this season, may the Prince of Peace keep you and your family in HIS perfect peace, as you place your trust in him and his promises!

Shalom from Jerusalem!

New Group of Bomb Shelters Delivered

ICEJ recently had the privilege of delivering a group of new bomb shelters to the Gaza Border. Despite the challenges faced in these areas of Israel, locals continue to thrive in their lives, thanks to your generosity!

Wednesday, October 17, at around 3.30 AM, a rocket slammed into a first-story bedroom in a family home in Beersheba. The Iron Dome rocket-defense system did not activate in this instance. The cause for the failure is still under investigation, but the incident proves the life-saving importance of being able to reach adequate bomb shelters in time. No one was seriously injured by the rocket, but had the family mother not reacted to the alarm siren and gotten her three children to safety, disaster would have struck. 

Watch this video about the impact that you and many Christians around the world are having on Israelis in crisis. Listen to Dr. Jürgen Bühler explain the importance of bomb shelters for Israel's border communities as the ICEJ's latest bomb shelter is installed next to a youth sports center, and hear the gratitude expressed by a local Israeli.

Please continue to support these efforts. Join us in continuing to show God’s love to the Jewish people by helping them build bomb shelters that protect their lives and give them the sense of security they need to endure!

Israeli Tools of Peace Thwart Instruments of War


A Big Thank You from Israel’s Frontline                 

Thanks to help from Christians like you from all over the world, Israel's frontline communities in the Gaza Envelope are holding up with determination.

They Know How to Fight the Fires – They Just Need the Right Tools
Over 1,000 arsons have been lit in the Eshkol region alone in the last couple of months informs Elan Isaacson, Security Chief for the Eshkol Region, which is one out of five Israeli municipalities bordering the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. In the meantime, the ICEJ has been able to supply 17 state-of-the-art firefighting trailers with high-pressure water dispensers, which can douse fires before they grow into destructive blazes.

“We know the terrain. We know how quickly to get to the fires. We are able to extinguish small to medium fires without any help and that has a lot to do with all the 17 trailers that were supplied very, very quickly in the last couple of months. Thank you very much ICEJ from Eshkol region.”

Your help has made a huge difference in how these local communities are able to persevere through ongoing challenges. Thank you!

Repurposed Agricultural Sprayers – Peaceful Defense
An Israeli company has repurposed agricultural sprayers into effective firefighting trailers that can handle almost any type of terrain. The company has also pushed the firefighting trailers up to the front of the production queue because they know how badly the trailers are needed. Now Israelis have a way of actively protecting their lands despite destructive attacks by incendiary balloons and arson kites. 

Your Help is of Great Value
This has value both in material and psychological terms: Materially, the local and national economy can limit the loss of crops; psychologically, the citizens of the region know that they are able to act and that the outside world is aware of their struggles.

Please continue to stand with us also in the future as we help protect the frontiers of Israel.

Yom Kippur: The Day of Atonement

All of Israel is preparing for the solemn holiday of Yom Kippur, which this year begins on the eve of September 18th. Join us for a look at the depth of God's foresight and provision for His people near and far. 

“This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves and not do any work—whether native-born or a foreigner residing among you— because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. It is a day of sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance." (Leviticus 16:29-31)

Watch this program to discover more about the biblical insight behind this day of Atonement.

Rosh Hashanah: The meaning behind the Holiday

Be a blessing to the people of Israel!

Rosh HaShana is a Jewish holiday celebrating the beginning of the year, based upon the Jewish calendar. As you watch this video, you will discover the traditions and biblical significance of this holiday.
