With the sudden passing of Fellowship Founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on February 6, leadership has now fallen to his daughter, Yael. On today's perspective, Yael shares her thoughts about the future in her new role as The Fellowship's president.
Also in Israel in the News this week:
 
  • Newly elected U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar came under fire from both sides of Congress earlier this week for making controversial comments about Israel.
  • Hundreds of thousands of Iranians attended marches this week, chanting “Death to Israel" and "Death to America,” as the nation of Iran marked the 40th anniversary of its 1979 revolution.
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called out the Iranian regime on Monday after an Iranian military leader threatened to destroy Israeli cities if the U.S. issued an attack. Netanyahu said if Iran makes the “terrible mistake” to attack, “it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate.”
  • The Fellowship Founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein was laid to rest on Feb. 7, as friends and family paid their respects to a “great man.”
