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.
