Jewish Agency for Israel – North American Council is an American charity that supports the international programs and activities of The Jewish Agency for Israel. Angels of Zion is an initiative to connect Christians from around the world to the work of The Jewish Agency for Israel, helping the Jewish People and the Jewish State.
Founded in 1929, the Jewish Agency for Israel was instrumental in founding and building the State of Israel, and continues to address the Jewish People’s greatest challenges. As one of its main missions, the Agency helps bring Jews to Israel, working to fulfill the biblical prophecies of the Ingathering of the Exiles and a return to Zion.
Over the years, the Jewish Agency has facilitated the Aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel) of over three million Jews – with over 100,000 moving to Israel in just the last four years (2013-2017). Beyond Aliyah, the Jewish Agency also engages in a number of programs aimed at strengthening Israel, and securing the future of her people. Those include the Fund for the Victims of Terror, the Agency’s rescue operations of Jews facing persecution and anti-semitism in hostile countries, and the committed support for lone soldiers serving in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
According to scripture, the nations of the world, such as our Christian friends, have an important role to play in the return of Jews to Zion. Isaiah said (49:22): “Thus says the sovereign Lord: See, I will beckon to the Nations, I will lift up my banner to the Peoples. They will bring your sons in their arms, and carry your daughters on their hips.” To help realize this vision, Christians and Jews have worked together for decades through the Agency.
