FOI Today Radio

Since going on air in 1991, our hope here at The Friends of Israel Today is to proclaim Jesus the Messiah to all people. We believe this program is unique because it highlights the fact that God still loves Israel and the Jewish people and that they still matter. How do we know that? Because God’s Word says it does!

As a faith-based ministry we cannot do this without the faithful giving from partners like you! Right now, if you partner with us with a gift of $25 or more we will send as our thanks the newly redesigned and updated It Is No Dream by Dr. Elwood McQuaid!

Please call 1-800-345-8461 and  mention the promo code “DREAM.”
