A Historic Aliyah

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

Dear Friend of Israel,

On the occasion of The Fellowship’s historic aliyah flight from Ukraine, I was privileged to say to a planeload of more than 200 Ukrainian Jewish refugees, “Shalom, and welcome to Israel. ‘This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it’” (Psalm 118:24). It's written in Psalm 126:1: “When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed.” It was indeed like a dream, and very exciting to be there on this occasion.

Rabbi Eckstein and soldiers from the 13th Battalion in the Golani Infantry Brigade came to work at Soroka.

Project Spotlight: Rosh Hashanah Food Cards for IDF Soldiers


We are thankful for the brave men and women of the IDF who protect the Holy Land and her people. And we are honored that The Fellowship is able to adopt IDF battalions and provide for lone and needy soldiers, especially at the holidays. Watch as Rabbi Eckstein visits an IDF base near Gaza, where The Fellowship has provided food cards for soldiers in need during the High Holy Days.

Rabbi Eckstein Visits Fellowship House Elderly Club to Offer Rosh Hashanah Blessing


As part of our Rosh Hashanah (Jewish new year) campaign, The Fellowship is giving a holiday gift of a shopping cart, honey, olive oil, and tea to the 7,500 elderly With Dignity and Fellowship participants located in 12 cities throughout Israel.

Rabbi Eckstein decided on the idea of a shopping cart, or “pull cart,” after he had seen so many elderly laden down with heavy bags as they left the market. The cart will ease the burden of those elderly who are able do their own shopping.
