Will Rabbi Eckstein’s Daughter Achieve Success in Rabbi’s Mission?

Christians and Jews, often viewed as two sides of a same coin, and two ends that can’t possibly meet. Most world no longer view one another as “the other.” The Christians were jealous to Jews and many Jews didn’t trust Christians for a reason. Humanity is a different concept, but religious leaders have their own philosophy that turn brains of the followers of those religious leaders.Yael Eckstein

It’s a different kind of politics or say religious politics that continued for several generations. In fact, Jesus himself was a Jew, and the Old testament of Christians is the Hebrew bible which is referred to by the Jews.

The fellowship of Christians and Jews

There are many similarities in the culture of Christians and Jews. For instance, Christians celebrate the preamble to Easter on Friday, Jews will celebrate the preamble to the Promised Land on this day. There are more examples like this. The founding of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) by a Jewish personality Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein for fundraising from Christians to support Jewish community is an example of Christians-Jews fellowship. The Fellowship is being managed by Rabbi’s daughter Yael Eckstein after his death.

Rabbi Eckstein’s charity mission

It shows that Jesus has done miracle by uniting two communities. Rabbi Eckstein convinced envious American Christians and raised millions of dollars to support Jews in Israel. He raised funds for many other projects, for instance, for needy elderly people of former Soviet Union (FSU), mostly from Christians. His daughter Yael Eckstein is following the footsteps of her father. Yael has now taken the charge of charity organization founded by her father 36 years ago.Yael Eckstein

What Jews deserve from Rabbi’s daughter

It’s not sure whether Yael Eckstein will exactly follow her father’s mission. Some people smell self-motive in managing this organization by the Rabbi’s daughter. Some Jews have big hopes on Yael to get increased support. Anyways, there are different views from different groups, but it’s yet to see how Yael will proceed.
