Together we will look at how the Messiah is related to the fall feasts of Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets), which celebrates the beginning of the Jewish Civil year; Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), which is considered the holiest day of the Jewish year; and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles or Booths), which recalls 40 years of wandering in the wilderness, living in tents (booths) and worshiping in a portable tabernacle.

Speakers

Mitch Glaser

Dr. Mitch Glaser was born into a nominally Orthodox Jewish home in New York City at a time when views on life, death and religion were beginning to undergo major changes in American society. His religious roots were soon lost after his Bar Mitzvah at age 13 to the excitement and energy of the 1960s. After dropping out of college in 1970, Dr. Glaser moved to California and was introduced to various Eastern religions which, while intriguing him, did not answer the questions of his soul. It was after two of his closest friends received Jesus as their Messiah that Dr. Glaser first heard the Gospel message. After reading the New Testament and studying Messianic prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures, Dr. Glaser himself received Jesus in November of 1970.
