Every Sunday through Friday, President and Founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ or The Fellowship), Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, sent out daily devotionals along with a scripture verse and the Hebrew Word of the Day to encourage understanding of Israel, the Jewish faith and Christianity’s Jewish roots. These devotionals have been a blessing to thousands of people over the years.
