We’re proud to announce that once again Yael Eckstein, The Fellowship’s President and CEO, has been named to the Jerusalem Post’s list of 50 Most Influential Jews for her work helping provide basic needs to those in war-torn Ukraine and support to those affected by the war. Congratulations, Yael! Thank you for your leadership and for all you do every day to help deliver lifesaving aid to those in need in Israel and around the world.

The Jerusalem Post tells us more:

With more than 30 years of experience in the former Soviet Union, Eckstein’s organization, The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship), has been at the forefront of providing essential support to those affected by the war.

Since the eruption of the Ukrainian conflict in February 2022, The Fellowship has facilitated the aliyah of thousands of Jewish refugees. It also launched extensive emergency aid programs, contributing nearly $60 million to distribute vital necessities such as food, medication, blankets, and generators to those affected by the conflict. Even during the initial days of the war when airspace was closed, The Fellowship’s determination allowed them to continue rescue flights, laden with humanitarian aid, to those trapped in Ukraine.
