Yom Shabbat Conference

Celebrating our Messianic Heroes: Running the Race with Endurance

A Survey of the Messianic Movement from the Beginning until Now


“Therefore, since we have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also get rid of every weight and entangling sin. Let us run with endurance the race set before us, focusing on Yeshua, the initiator and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, disregarding its shame; and He has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Hebrews 12:1–2, TLV


Dr. Mitch Glaser, President of Chosen People Ministries USA, together with Dr. Alan Shore, will present a biblical and historical survey of the Messianic Movement from the time of the first Jewish believers until today. As we look back at what the Lord has done in the coming of Yeshua the Messiah, and as we are inspired by the lives and testimonies of Jewish believers throughout the ages, including during the Jewish people’s darkest hour, the Holocaust, we will be encouraged in our faith and reinvigorated in our end-time mission to see a revival amongst Jewish people worldwide.

This event is free, but registration is mandatory. A free will offering will be taken during the conference.

There are cafes around the Centre where you can grab a meal (e.g. Fress Cafe, Delish). Afternoon tea will be provided.

He will speak in the afternoon on the subject of his most recent book The Seven Phases of the Holocaust, which is about Jewish believers in the Holocaust.
