"Comfort ye, comfort ye my people." Isaiah 40:1
“Rabbi Eckstein worked tirelessly to benefit the citizens of Israel and strengthen the bond between Christian communities and the State of Israel. His leadership as founder and president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews greatly contributed to enriching our society and building new and lasting friendships with many people around the world.”
Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel
“Words cannot express the sorrow I feel at the untimely passing of my dear friend, Yechiel Eckstein. Yechiel has been a pioneer and champion of Christian/Jewish relations for decades. We have worked together on many projects, and the success of his organization attests to compassion that he feels for his fellow Jews who suffer in poverty in various parts of the world. I am sure I echo the words of our Lord, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.’”
Pat Robertson, Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN)
“What a magnificent man and Jewish leader … I will always consider my friendship and cooperative work with Yechiel Eckstein one of the most important facts of my life on this earth – and I hope to rejoice with him in Heaven, the ultimate Promised Land.”
“A great man, a great Jew and a great Zionist. Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, a man of charity and vision, left us today. His contribution to the Jewish people and the State of Israel will be felt for generations. We mourn his loss. May his memory be a blessing.”
Reuven Rivlin, President of Israel
"One of the most important changes that I have experienced during my lifetime is the reuniting of Christians and Jews. One of the people who was most responsible for that transformation was Yechiel Eckstein. He had a vision of a shared interfaith future based on a shared interfaith past that began with God’s creation.”
Joseph Lieberman, Former U.S. Senator
“Whether caring for Holocaust survivors throughout the world or working tirelessly to shore up Israel’s security, supporting Israel's soldiers or countless other organizations, Rabbi Eckstein’s dedication and love for his people never ceased to amaze. He was and will remain absolutely irreplaceable.”
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. His impact on the state of Israel and on bringing Jews and Christians together will be felt for generations. I pray God brings comfort to the Rabbi’s family during this very difficult time, and I know that his memory will be a blessing to us all.”
