Pat Robertson, founder and chairman of The Christian Broadcasting Network, has been a friend of Rabbi Eckstein and The Fellowship for years. Earlier today, after hearing of the passing of his longtime friend, he sent us this lovely note of condolence.
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.”
