The President of the Chicago-based International Fellowship of Christians and Jews Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein will represent the State of Israel at the funeral of American televangelist Jerry Falwell, the organization announced Sunday. "I am honored to represent the State of Israel at the farewell to this great man and important figure... and a man that I was honored to call a personal friend. He will be deeply missed," Eckstein said. Eckstein will attend the funeral Tuesday on behalf of the State at the behest of the Israeli Ambassador to the US Salli Meridor. Falwell died Tuesday at 73.
