Our Story – About ICEJ Canada

Comforting the People of Israel with God’s love.

Resilience is woven into the fibre of the Jewish people.  For millenia, they have felt alone, suffered rejection, ridicule, slavery, persecution and isolation, experiencing extensive trauma and catastrophe. From the spawning of anti-Semitism in the 3rd century to the crusade massacres, to being used as scapegoats during the Black Plague, the Spanish Inquisition, the horrific, inhumane attempted elimination of the Jews during the Holocaust, and the current acts of violent extremism against the people of Israel; their story is one of survival, adaptation, enduring strength, determination and triumph over adversity.

In 1980, the Embassies of the world in Israel, threatened by the Arab oil powers with an embargo against their countries, withdrew from Jerusalem, not recognizing the city as the eternal capital of the Jewish people. This action left Israel feeling isolated and alone, without friends in the world. However a year prior, Christians from around the world gathered in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, according to Zechariah chapter 14’s prophecy. The organizers of this gathering, moved by Godly compassion for the Israeli people and in alignment with the promises of scripture towards Jerusalem and Israel, decided to establish the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ).

ICEJ Canada Aid & Development is a Canadian registered charitable organization offering ongoing aid and development through various project initiatives to communities within Israel, as well as education in support of Israel and against anti-Semitism in Canada.

Serving as a direct connection to the land of Israel for the Canadian Church, ICEJ Canada is an evangelical response for the need to comfort Zion according to the command of Biblical scripture. ICEJ helps to bridge the gap between the Christian community and the Jewish people in advocacy and special aid projects that bless all of the people in the land of Israel; Jew and Arab.

“Comfort, comfort my people says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem…” – Isaiah 40:1-2
