The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was established in 1980 in recognition of the biblical significance of all of Jerusalem and its unique connection with the Jewish people. Today, it represents millions of Christians, churches, and denominations to the nation and people of Israel. We recognize in the restoration of the State of Israel God's faithfulness to keep His ancient covenant with the Jewish people.
Our main objectives are:
From its head offices in Jerusalem, the ICEJ reaches out into more than 140 countries worldwide, with branch offices in over 80 nations.
Our Vision is:
- To reach every segment of Israel’s society with a Christian testimony of comfort and love, and
- To reach and actively represent to Israel the support of denominations, churches, and believers from every nation on earth.

Yours in Christ,
Dr. Jürgen Bühler
ICEJ Executive Director
For over 30 years the ICEJ has stood by Israel, showing our support in a variety of ways, both in the land and around the world. We administer several aid projects, engage in advocacy for Israel, and assist in aliyah to the Jewish homeland.
The ICEJ educates Christians all over the world about Israel's unique calling, political situation and social challenges. We are probably best known for annually hosting the Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles that draws thousands of pilgrims to Jerusalem for teaching, worship and prayer. We also undertake speaking tours and conferences around the world and have an active young adults program, Grafted, to reach the next generation of Christian leaders.
The ICEJ is called to confront the rising tide of hostility that threatens the nation of Israel and the Jewish community worldwide. Islamic extremism is not just a threat to Israel, but is responsible for the persecution of Christians and oppression of women throughout the Middle East. We are confronting anti-Semitism worldwide through advocacy, accurate news reports and education. We are reaching out in support to beleagured Palestinian Christians and African refugees who have fled Muslim warlords.
We invite you to join with us as we bring comfort to Israel and the Jewish people throughout the world.
