The JerUSAlem Connection

The JerUSAlem Connection, International (TJCI) is a Christians and Jews to support Israel and the Jewish people. TJCI accomplishes this goal in large part through the publication of its magazine and weekly online communications, analyzing events in Israel from a Biblical perspective.

TJCI's magazine is a bimonthly publication with 32 pages of full-color articles and commentary from nationally syndicated columnists, addressing the issues of the Middle East, Israel and global terrorism as they relate to biblical issues.

Supported organizations

The Jerusalem Connection supports several charity projects in Israel.

TJCI offers Christian support to the Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund (SICF), a rehabilitation center dedicated to helping terror-victim children in Shiloh. Through Operation Life for Israel, TJCI also supports pro-life efforts in the Land of Israel.

  • Operation Aliya: Operation Aliya has helped more than 80,000 Jews from the former Soviet Union immigrate to Israel and is now focusing its efforts on Sephardic Jews.

The Cyrus Fund is an expanded ministry of Operation Aliya devoted to the return of the B’nai Anusim, the ancestors of Jews who migrated to the Americas from Spain after being expelled in 1492. Historians estimate that there are tens of millions of B’nai Anusim in the Americas. The Jerusalem Connection is participating in finding these Sephardic Jews and helping them logistically and financially to make Aliya.

  • The Elisha Fund: The Jerusalem Connection has established The Elisha Fund to provide food, clothing and basic household goods to Israel’s needy. Many of these supplies go to new immigrants who are in need of practical support while they learn Hebrew and undergo job training. Help also goes to poor Jerusalem families. In 2007, the Jerusalem Municipality report showed 56 percent of the capital’s children and 33 percent of the city’s families were living in poverty.
