Struggles and Triumphs While Building Bridges

Tuly Weisz of Breaking Israel News brings us this latest review of Rabbi Eckstein's recently release biography, The Bridge Builder:

Eckstein revealed a more personal calling when asked what Biblical passage serves as his greatest inspiration.

“If I had to pick one phrase it would be Jeremiah 31:16, ‘And there is hope for thy future, saith the LORD; and thy children shall return to their own border.’ Jeremiah promises that there is hope, there is Tikvah, to be found when the Jewish people return to our borders, the Land of Israel.  

“That to me has been the essence of my dream,” he related to Breaking Israel News. “That’s why our national anthem is called Hatikvah, the Hope. My life has been fulfilled when I came on aliyah 13 years ago and fulfilled my personal dream to move and live here at the age of 49.”
