Yechiel Eckstein’s contribution in founding IFCJ
As one speak of Yael Eckstein one should not forget the contribution of her father Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein who donated 35 valuable years of his life to assemble the Jews and the Christians together so that they can serve the distressed people of Israel. To be more accurate, Yechiel Eckstein’s dream was to unite the Jew and the Christian communities for the ‘common cause of Israel.’
Only for this purpose the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. As a promising daughter to her father Yael Eckstein has followed his footsteps and has taken the leadership of the organisation.
Eckstein, who was already engage in other social activities for the betterment of the society (she lives in) didn’t had the expectation that she would soon achieve the leadership position of IFCJ, the non profit organisation which was established by her father.
Yael Eckstein on her late father
She was left speechless at the demise of her loving father. The renowned ‘Jewish Statesman’ suffered a cardiac arrest at the age of 67 leaving behind his dreams fulfilled, his progressing organisation and all his worldly ties.
Yael Eckstein states that she feels proud for her late father who was a public figure and whose sole mission was to create perfect bonding of the Christians as well as the Jews for social cause.
She had been very close to him and had assisted him in his work every day. Therefore, she became thoroughly acquainted with the organisation and its activities.
According to Eckstein there are three types of ministries.
- Isaiah 58
- Guardians of Israel
Besides the IFCJ Organisation is also guiding and helping the Jew community to throw away ‘Global Hatred’ and ‘anti-Semitism.’ She focuses on surpassing ‘anti-Semitism.’ Anti-Semitism is defined as narrow-mindedness or prejudice against the Jews.
