‘The Fellowship’ CEO: ‘We Have to Stand Strong Against This Hatred’

by | May 26, 2021 | Spiritual Warfare

Amid what seems to be exponential growth of antisemitism around the world, Yael Eckstein remains steadfast about her kingdom mission.

As the president and CEO of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, Eckstein knows how crucial it is to continue to not only build bridges between Christians and Jews, but also to help Jews escape poverty and antisemitism, as well as return them to their biblical homeland. With funded humanitarian assistance, The Fellowship has touched the lives of millions of Jews in Israel and worldwide in a culture where hatred and disdain for their people is increasing rapidly.

Comprised of independent organizations in Canada, the U.S. and Israel, The Fellowship collectively raises over $165 million annually. Eckstein oversees all programs for The Fellowship while serving as the international spokesperson for the organization. She is also the host of the Nourish Your Biblical Roots podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.

Her work to combat antisemitism around the world is tireless, including in Israel, where a ceasefire was recently declared for yet another conflict with Hamas that reared its ugly head for approximately 11 days.

“The violence that we’re seeing, we thought we were done with it,” Eckstein told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “We haven’t seen this in a long time. I don’t know God’s plans, but I have to believe that somehow it’s going to bring some good; maybe even to remind the Jewish people without assimilation how Israel is their only home. They can’t forget their identity; they can’t forget who they are.

“But I think it’s all of our responsibilities to really stand strong against this hatred that is spreading like wildfire. I believe if we don’t get it under control, it will burn all of us down as a people of faith. … Everyone’s prayers are Israel’s weapons of mass destruction. That’s why we’re protected. Not one person in Israel takes one prayer for granted. So, thank you.”

Additionally, The Fellowship is more than doing its part to help Jewish people make Aliyah to Israel. On a daily basis, The Fellowship helps people from places like the former Soviet Union and Ukraine, South America and France to escape antisemitism.

“The amazing thing is that there were 4,000 rockets falling on Israel, which is the size of New Jersey, and you had Jewish people saying, ‘Israel is the safest place for me.’ That’s how you know how bad antisemitism has gotten.”
