Forty years ago, on May 16, 1983, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein listened to God’s call and started The Fellowship. And today, forty years later, his daughter Yael, along with Fellowship friends around the world, continue the holy work he began. In the above photograph from The Fellowship’s infant days, the Rabbi holds an infant Yael, a reflection of the below picture taken in the years before Yael began leading The Fellowship into our next 40 years of holy work.
