2016-2017 Gift Catalog
The Friends of Israel, takes God at His Word when we read in Genesis 12:3 (speaking of Israel), “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse.”
Because of this we started the Israel Relief Fund. Generous gifts through this fund have saved lives all over the country of Israel. Through this fund we have been able to provide bomb shelters in vulnerable areas of Israel, men and women who are trapped in lives of drug addiction and prostitution have found freedom in God, and young lives are being saved from abortion by supporting single mothers.
When you give to the Israel Relief Fund, know that 100% of your support goes to Israel and helps to save lives both physically and spiritually. When you donate, you are being a True friend of Israel!
Have you ever wondered why God chose the town of Bethlehem for Jesus to be born? It may not seem like a big deal, but to the Jewish people of that day, it was a game changer (and it still is today)!
If you’ve enjoyed hearing about Dr. Ice’s reasons for supporting Israel, you can order his new book The Case for Zionism. You’ll get answers to many contemporary arguments being used by both secular and religious communities to undermine what many of us believe is the hand of God at work in our own day. While support for Israel remains high in most evangelical communities, we are seeing the beginning of a decline, especially among younger evangelicals, who question whether modern Israel really relates to end-time Bible prophecy. Order your copy for only $14.99.
Free Resources from The Friends of Israel
The Friends of Israel wants to help you build your knowledge of the Bible as you grow in your faith. Through our blogs and videos, we cover topics like Passover and other Biblical feasts, doctrine, and christian living.
We believe when you read the bible through the lens of the correct culture, history, and understanding of the original audience, which is primarily the Jewish people, it helps see the full picture of how God is working in the world and in our lives.

Apples of Gold
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. -Proverbs 25:11
It was 1959 when the writings of Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher were first published in our magazine, Israel My Glory. And even though he passed into the Lord’s presence in November 2014 his column remains a source of inspiration to countless believers worldwide.
Many have said that Apples of Gold was where they would turn first after receiving the latest issue of the magazine. And within those pages they would marvel at how God used this extraordinary man in and around Jerusalem to reach people from all walks of life. His boldness to tell of the saving love of his Messiah has challenged and enriched all who knew him.
(Apples of Gold radio segments are dramatized readings of Zvi Kalisher’s Israel My Glory magazine articles. The voice of Zvi is portrayed by hall of fame broadcaster Mike Kellogg.)
