Rabbi Eckstein Named One of Jewish 100

Rabbi Eckstein Named One of Jerusalem Post’s Most Influential Jews Yossi Zwecker

Congratulations to Rabbi Eckstein for being named one of The Algemeiner's Jewish 100 - "the top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life" today! That he is listed as someone who has helped "Community" should come as no surprise to those who know of his tireless work in helping Israel and the Jewish people worldwide, as well as building bridges between the Jewish and Christian faith communities:

...Eckstein’s group, which has contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to programs that help Israel and Jews around the world, remains relevant by fostering new relationships.

In August 2015, he led a trip to Israel by more than 20 high-ranking ministers from the Church of God in Christ, the largest black Pentecostal denomination and fourth-largest Protestant group in America, with 12,000 member churches.

“The pastors reminded us that the Jewish people and the State of Israel do not stand alone,” Eckstein said at the time. “Today, we envision a new era in bridge building between the African-American Christian community, Israel, and the Jewish people.”

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
