Eckstein cruises to Alaska

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, the president and founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, is not only acting a little chilly towards the Jewish Agency right now.

He wants to take you into the deep cold as well, according to the mass (no pun intended) e-mail we just got from him:

Only 2 Days Left To Register For Our Alaskan Cruise!

In August, we’re going on an Alaskan cruise! During this week-long journey you’ll see some of the most incredible beauty in God’s creation including Glacier Bay, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Juneau. On
board, Rabbi Eckstein will lead Bible studies that will help you better understand the Jewish roots of Christianity, and will share stories of the life-changing impact of Fellowship initiatives. You’ll
also share a Sabbath meal with Rabbi Eckstein and his wife.

There are only two days left to register for this unique event. Sign up now – and then join us this summer for the trip of a lifetime summer for the trip of a lifetime.

The Fundermentalist is awaiting a response from Eckstein’s people about whether the tour’s stop in Sitka is coincidental or planned because it is the setting of the fictional Jewish city-state from Michael Chabon’s novel “The Yiddish Policeman’s Union.” (Which the Fundermentalist commands you to read if you have not yet already.)
