In an exclusive interview with TriStateVoice.com (video above), Dr. Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries, shared insights on the upcoming “Oppose Antisemitism: Stop the Hate” rally and the alarming rise of antisemitism globally. Glaser emphasized the importance of this event and its impact on both Jewish and Christian communities.

A Call to Action

The rally, set for June 20th in New York City, will feature esteemed speakers like Dr. A.R. Bernard, Dr. Michael Brown, and Glaser, along with renowned musical guests Joshua Aaron and Aaron Shust. The goal is to unite Jewish and Christian believers in a stand against antisemitism.

Reflecting on Recent Events

When asked about the horrific events of October 7th, Dr. Glaser recounted his recent trip to Israel, highlighting the enduring spirit of the Jewish people amidst adversity. “Israel is in a very difficult place right now,” he shared. “Our ministry has about 25 to 30 staff members in Israel, and we are deeply committed to our mission there, despite the challenges.”

Dr. Glaser described the dire situation in Israel, particularly in the Golan Heights, where 40 rockets recently fell. He emphasized the resilience of the local population, including Chosen People staff members.

“If we don’t stay, we lose our testimony,” he asserted, highlighting the ministry’s commitment to remain steadfast despite the dangers. Despite the turmoil. Chosen People baptized 14 new Israeli believers in the past 90 days. “In the midst of all the trials, God is working in people’s hearts,” he said.

Antisemitism on the Rise

The conversation shifted to the growing antisemitism in New York City, where a monument to the victims of a recent concert attack in Israel was vandalized. Dr. Glaser, who grew up in a post-Holocaust Jewish home in New York City, expressed his disbelief at the resurgence of violent antisemitism. “It’s violent, virulent, and ethnic. It’s just destructive,” he said, recounting how Anti-Israeli protesters  chant “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which is a call for the eradication of Jewish presence in the region.

Spiritual and Practical Support

Dr. Glaser urged Christians to support Israel through prayer and other means. “We need to pray for the leaders of the government in Israel, the hostages, and the innocent victims of Hamas,” he said. He also highlighted the significant role Christians can play in supporting Jewish people, emphasizing their shared faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

A Message of Hope

The Oppose Semitism: Stop the Hate rally aims to foster a deeper understanding and solidarity among attendees. “We have over 600 people registered, and we only have 1,200 seats,” he said, encouraging people to register soon.

The rally promises to be a powerful event, bringing together voices of faith to stand against hate and support the Jewish community. As Dr. Glaser aptly put it, “We’re going to see what we can do together as the body of Christ to serve the Lord by serving the Jewish people and our Jewish friends.”
