We are heartbroken to tell you that Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Fellowship‘s Founder and President, passed away today in his home in Jerusalem at the age of 67.

All of us at The Fellowship are deeply saddened and shocked. Even as we give thanks to God for Rabbi Eckstein’s life, we especially ask that you pray for Rabbi Eckstein’s family, and for all of us at The Fellowship who mourn this incalculable loss, during this most difficult time.

Thank you, our dear friends and partners, for holding us up with your prayers.
