JERUSALEM — The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship) announced today that The Globee® Awards, organizers of the world’s premier business awards programs and business ranking lists, has named Yael Eckstein, The Fellowship’s president and CEO, a winner in the 10th Annual 2022 CEO World Awards®.
CEO World Awards are an annual industry and peer recognition program honoring CEOs, executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and their management teams from organizations in every industry and of every size around the world. Judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices participated and their average scores and inputs determined the 2022 award winners. Yael Eckstein won in the category of Female CEO of the Year Global for leading The Fellowship’s quick and coordinated humanitarian response to the war in Ukraine.
The Fellowship is the leading nonprofit building bridges between Christians and Jews, blessing Israel and the Jewish people around the world with humanitarian care and lifesaving aid. In response to the crisis in Ukraine, this year The Fellowship – which marked a milestone in 2021 by serving more than 2 million people in need – has assisted 80,000 displaced Ukrainians and refugees, helped over 4,100 find shelter in Israel, and delivered more than 100 tons of food and essentials to distressed Ukrainian families.
“I’m so honored to receive this award,” said Eckstein. “I feel blessed to lead this organization whose staff and volunteers are dedicated to saving Jewish lives, in times of crisis and every day. And our work simply wouldn’t be possible without our hundreds of thousands of supporters. Their generosity and compassion toward Jewish people in need never ceases to amaze me. As the tragedy in Ukraine unfolded, we turned to them for help – and their response was truly extraordinary.”
