Pat Boone and Rabbi Eckstein

“The idea of asking Christians to support bringing aged Jews from behind the Iron Curtain to dwell in the Promised Land while they were still alive just really resonated with me, as it did with Pat Robertson and so many other Christian leaders. So when Rabbi Eckstein asked if I would co-host that first special, of course, immediately, I said I would. And we did. And that launched the program, On Wings of Eagles, which has absolutely made history. I’m so supportive of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews because we serve the same God. We are kinsman, and so we have to take care of our family. I’m just part of the family.”

“We have to take care of our family, and these elderly people who are barely surviving on crumbs and not even enough money to put wood in the fire. The Fellowship goes there, and you put warm clothes on them. You bring them food and medicine. You bring us there to see these people in their poverty, and we have to reach out and give them what they need now, and whenever possible to bring them to live their last moments and last days in the Promised Land.”

“Yechiel Eckstein is a dear friend. I consider it a privilege to work with him in bringing understanding between Christians and Jews, and in helping save thousands of lives through The Fellowship’s programs. I urge you to get involved with this organization. It is making a difference.
