The Fellowship has donated a total of seven MRI machines to hospitals in Israel's smaller towns.

Armed with His Guitar, Rabbi Eckstein Joins the Fight

IFCJ

Rabbi Eckstein’s biography, The Bridge Builder, released last week. In celebration, enjoy an excerpt from this compelling book about the rabbi’s life and continuing legacy.

On October 6, 1973, the Egyptian and Syrian armies launched a surprise attack on Israel. It was Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, and Eckstein was in shul, in Canada.

Rabbi Eckstein’s biography, The Bridge Builder, released last week. In celebration, enjoy an excerpt from this compelling book about the rabbi’s life and continuing legacy.

Most Israeli general officers do academic training in engineering or the sciences; Gershon has a degree in public relations.
