We are excited to announce that Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein will receive an award this weekend from the Cohon Memorial Foundation. Each year the foundation honors individuals who have “benefit[ed] Klal Yisroel, the entire Jewish people,” and this year they picked Rabbi Eckstein for his humanitarian aid!

The Jewish Post reports:

Temple Emanu-El will host the 2016 Cohon Memorial Foundation Awards at Shabbat evening services on Friday, Jan. 13, at 7:30 p.m. Rabbi Baruch J. Cohon and Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon will present the awards to this year’s winners, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder and president of the International Federation of Christians and Jews, and Professor Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder and director of the Amcha Initiative.

Eckstein founded the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews in 1983, devoting his life to building bridges of understanding between Christians and Jews and broad support for the state of Israel. He’s recognized as the world’s leading Jewish authority on evangelical Christians. The Fellowship raises more than $140 million annually, making it the largest Christian-supported nonprofit working in Israel today.

Help us keep impoverished elderly people, including Holocaust survivors, warm this winter when you support our Operation Winter Warmth project!
