IFCJ to expand its aid to Beduin sector by NIS 1.1 million

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews has announced plans to expand its aid program to the Beduin sector by NIS 1.1 million annually. The expansion comes in addition to the IFCJ’s NIS 3.6 million yearly to support social welfare programs in the Beduin community.

The announcement was made during a visit last Tuesday of IFCJ representatives, headed by the Fellowship’s founder and director Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, to the Beduin villages of Hura and Um-Batin, in the Negev. IFCJ members met with the heads of local Beduin municipalities, together with the Education Ministry’s director for the Beduin sector and IDF representatives from the Beduin community.
