Glenn Harris Interview

Shalom!   In a galaxy far away, many years in the past, I interviewed Glenn Harris.   Neither of us remembers the exact day or time, so it was good to have him back on Bagels and Blessings!   His story is inspiring, and you'll love it!   As always, I picked out some of my favorite tunes! 

Here's a little background on Glenn: 

Glenn Harris was born and raised in a traditional Jewish family in Los Angeles, CA.

After several fruitless years searching through New Age religions for answers to the big

questions of life, Glenn became a follower of Jesus in March of 1981, through the

challenge of a co-worker to come to a church presentation and to give the Gospel a fair

hearing. Glenn served for ten and a half years with Jews for Jesus and now for the past

twenty-four years has been the Associate Rabbi and Worship Leader at Congregation

Shema Yisrael in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan - a community of both Jews and Gentiles

who acknowledge Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the World.

Glenn holds his Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Literature from Northeastern Bible College

(now Kings College, NY) and Master of Divinity from Michigan Theological Seminary

(now Moody Theological Seminary - Michigan). He and his wife Alexandra have three

grown children and two grandchildren, and live in Birmingham, MI. Glenn is a respected

Bible teacher, occasional talk-radio host, outspoken pro-life advocate, cancer survivor,

musician, and avid motorcyclist.

Anna Michelle

Here's another fascinating story about a woman who met her Messiah!  Born in Israel, Anna grew up in a multi-cultural Russian-Jewish family. Anna came to know God at around 10 years old but did not truly know him until having an encounter at a college youth retreat through her university. Anna is currently a Data Analyst by profession, but her true mission is sharing the message of hope in Yeshua to all. She is blessed with a wonderful marriage to her husband and they have an adorable cat Barney.

Enjoy the music also!

Lynn Wein McCoy

Today you will hear a pre-recorded interview with Lynn Wein McCoy (yep, she's the real McCoy!). Lynn was raised in a religious Jewish home in Hartford, Connecticut. She became a Bat Mitzvah at the age of 13, attended Jewish youth groups, and even graduated second in her Hebrew class. Later she entered the University of Hartford, and studied Psychology. While there, she attended a meeting where a Jewish Believer gave his story of coming to believe Yeshua was the Messiah. She began searching the scriptures and a month later became a believer! She has served in the field of Jewish evangelism since 1987.  You can find her on YouTube cooking some delicious recipes.  Look for "Taste of Wein" - (W E I N).

Watch her cooking show here:


Enjoy the music too!  Thanks so much for listening!!

Grace Stasica Interview

Today you will hear the testimony of Grace Stasica.  Grace grew up Baptist, accepted Yeshua into her heart, and it wasn't until her 50s that she became interested in the Jewish roots of her faith.  Today she is Torah observant and a member of a Messianic congregation in Colorado.

I enjoyed chatting with Grace and I know you will be blessed!

Also enjoy the music of Jonathan Settel, Joshua Aaron, Jordan Elias, Paul Wilbur, Corry Bell & Lev Shelo, and Ted Pearce.

Every day of your life is an opportunity to be a blessing to someone!
