We are proud to report that The Jerusalem Post has included Rabbi Eckstein on their annual list of the 50 Most Influential Jews. Citing his and The Fellowship’s tireless work to help Israel and her people in need around the world, The Jerusualem Post put Rabbi Eckstein at number 23 on their list.

Since founding the organization in 1983, Eckstein has raised more than $1.3 billion, and currently raises more than $140 million a year, mostly from Evangelicals, to assist Israel and the Jewish people.

“With Dignity and Fellowship,” one of the flagship programs of the nonprofit organization, helps more than 10,000 senior citizens, many of them Holocaust survivors, in more than 20 cities in Israel, and has a budget of more than NIS 30,000,000.

The organization has provided heaters and heating grants to poor elderly in Israel and countries in the former Soviet Union, sponsored extracurricular activities for the rocket-battered children of southern Israel and has donated life-saving equipment for hospitals across the country.
