A New and Gifted Leader

Longtime friend of The Fellowship and CEO/President of Concerned Women for America, Penny Nance, shared this uplifting message lamenting the loss of Rabbi Eckstein and looking ahead to the future as her friend Yael takes over her father’s leadership role:

I specifically want to give my love to Yael Eckstein. She and I have gotten to know each other over the past several years and developed a sweet friendship. I have deep respect for her both on a personal and a professional level.

I know that staff and supporters may be feeling uncertain as The Fellowship plots a new course forwards without its esteemed founder but I have not one doubt that the organization will continue to thrive and grow under Yael’s able leadership. She is one of the most competent women I know. She also has the experience of the day to day operations and decision making for The Fellowship for several years already. Her heart and passion is for her family, for the staff, for Fellowship supporters and for the hurting and sometimes broken people served by The Fellowship. I have every confidence in her compassionate, wise, discerning and trustworthy leadership.

We mourn the loss of a great leader but also welcome a new and gifted one stepping in to fill the gap.
