Rabbi Eckstein on Reconciling Jews and Evangelicals

new article in JNS.org highlights Rabbi Eckstein’s work to reconcile Christians and Jews.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein cracked the code on relations between Jews and evangelical Christians. His next “Mission: Impossible” might be thwarting the widespread persecution of Middle East Christians, most notably at the hands of the merciless Islamic State terror group.

Eckstein’s breakthrough on Jewish-evangelical ties dates back to a private 1979 interfaith gathering at Wheaton College in Illinois, when evangelical scholar David Wells said “we love Jews”—but received a hostile reaction from a Jew.
