A Holy Land Hero — Ariel Elkin
This week, Yael welcomes a young Israeli who is a true “light to the nations.” Ariel Elkin is a 16-year-old racecar driver from Israel who is competing—and winning—at the highest levels of racing, even at his young age. Partnering with The Fellowship as he prepares to race in Texas, Ariel shares our mission—reaching out to Israel’s friends around the world and working to gain support for the Jewish state and her people.
With so much violence and turmoil in the Holy Land, after unprecedented terror attacks plunged Israel into war with Hamas, it is refreshing to hear positive stories about Israel, and to have these stories told to the world.
This week’s podcast guest is a true shining light for Israel on the international road and track. Ariel Elkin is only 16 years old, but has been racing since the age of five. Currently in the U.S. competing in the F4 SpeedTour and the World Karting Cup, Ariel has already won the Italian IAME Series Championship, and represented Israel at the Motorsport Olympic Games in Karting SR, where he won bronze.
But most importantly, Ariel is a proud young Israeli who shows such composure on the world stage, a true “light to the nations.” Yael talks with Ariel about his childhood growing up in the Holy Land, his racing career across the globe, his partnership with The Fellowship, and how much Israel’s friends around the world mean, especially in times like these.
