Nding IsraelEckstein founded The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews in 1983 to promote cross cultural understanding and build broad support for Israel Soviet Jewry and other shared concerns The Fellowship has grown and thrived over the last three decades raising than 11 billion and is one of the largest 50 NGOs in America today American Christians have become one of Israel’s most reliable so. Interesting look at a man who sacrificed family and friends to work tirelessly for his Jewish people even if that meant getting all his millions from Christians to do it preying on religious beliefs to garner support Where s the Jewish community to help their own instead of criticizing his methods I interviewed for a job with this organization and am glad I don t have to work for him sounds like an egotistical and self important demi god that being said the end result of his work speaks volumes

The amazing story of Yechiel Eckstein a Chicago based orthodox rabbi who founded the world’s largest philanthropic organization of Evangelical Christians in support of IsraelWhen the Anti Defamation League sent a young Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein to Chicago to foster interfaith relations in the late 1970’s he was surprised to see how responsive Christian evangelicals were to the cause of supporting and defe. As portrayed in an authorized biography by Zev Chavets an American Israeli author and columnist Rabbi Yechiel Epstein is a driven courageous and complex figure He is the founder and president of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews a group dedicated to building bridges of understanding between mostly Evangelical Christians and Jews in support for the state of Israel and other humanitarian causesRabbi Eckstein s outreach to Evangelic Christians was groundbreaking and fraught with naysayers and critics concerned about Evangelical Christian motives supporting Israel only to bring on Armageddon and possible intentions with regard to proselytizing Jews Critics and concerns aside no conversions related to the Fellowship have been reported Eckstein has grown the Fellowship into a multi million dollar operation engaged in numerous philanthropic endeavors Who is the man behind all this With a rabbinic legacy and ordination from Orthodox based Yeshiva University Yechiel Eckstein was an unlikely candidate to be a bridge builder between Christians and Jews Biographer Chavets depicts the origins of Eckstein s path which Eckstein terms a divine mission when he is humiliated at his daughter s Bat Mitzvah The presiding rabbi there deemed him unfit to recite public prayer due to his visiting Christian churches in the early stages of his bridge building Chavets chronicles Eckstein s slow rise to success overcoming resistance from the Jewish establishment financial struggles and family disapproval For all the text devoted to his accomplishments it is Eckstein s humanity that is most compelling in the book He seeks approval from a reluctant father He struggles to balance his desire for personal emotional prayer with the demands of being a rabbi on the public stage He longs to serve Israel as a member of the Israeli Defense Forces and not only from behind an office desk From this complex man emerges bold acts like the following In the aftermath of a widely perceived slight from the president of the Southern Baptist Convention about the value of Jewish prayer that does not acknowledge Jesus Eckstein broke away from the voices of consternation expressed by the Jewish establishment and saw an opportunity to engage the preacher with dialogue and understanding As a writer who is also exploring themes of bridge building I found myself appreciating Eckstein the man as much as I do the Fellowship he created I only wonder whether a memoir would have been a better instrument to tell his story affording readers a intimate connection with himEckstein s journey resonates with our own life journeys uoting Genesis he recalls God commanding Abraham to take his son to the land I will show you but he doesn t tell Abraham where it is If we don t yet know where our destiny lies Yechiel Eckstein s story reminds us that it can be on a road less traveled
