‘Good People Saving Lives’: How Christians Support Israel
The Fellowship | June 7, 2022
See how you’ve helped us deliver lifesaving aid in unprecedented levels to Israelis in need and also to those caught in conflict in the Ukraine war in this detailed article by the Jerusalem Post about our work and partners:
“Our collaboration with The Fellowship started many years ago, and because of this, when the war started, we were best positioned to help,” explained Shlomo Peles, a member of the Chabad of Ukraine leadership team.
Peles said that while many organizations around the world wanted to act, they were not equipped. Others came for a month or two but have already left the country. The Fellowship is still around.
“Our major partner was always The Fellowship. Now it is The Fellowship. And I know that even after the war, when the world has moved on, The Fellowship will still be here,” he said.
Peles recalled how Fellowship CEO Yael Eckstein herself got on a plane and went to Ukraine to see what was happening on the ground and how her organization could best help.
“People were fleeing Ukraine and she went there,” he said. “She did not believe she could just hear it from afar and make good decisions like that.
