Conference to Reflect on Historic Day and Current Realities 20 Years Later

Chosen People Ministries, in partnership with Alliance for the Peace of Jerusalem, will host 9/11 and the New Middle East, a two-day gathering on Sept. 10 and 11 to honor the fallen and survivors on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11 and help participants, both locally and around the globe, view current events taking place in Israel and the Middle East through a scriptural lens.

Held at Trinity Baptist Church in New York City, 9/11 and the New Middle East will feature notable speakers such as best-selling author and speaker Anne Graham Lotz, best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg, Chosen People Ministries President Dr. Mitch Glaser and Moody Bible Institute professor Michael Rydelnik. Additionally, the event will include a panel discussion as well as testimonies from pastors, ministry leaders, and first responders who served following the events of 9/11.

“The tragedy of 9/11 made the threat of terrorism real in the U.S. and created a new understanding for what had plagued Israel for decades. We hope that 9/11 and the New Middle East will spark discussion on how the Middle East has been and continues to be affected by the life-changing events on that day,” said Glaser. “God is doing big things in this region with His people and I look forward to the opportunity for others to learn of the good news.”

The conference will kick off Friday, Sept. 10 with a special remembrance ceremony called “Yizkor,” which in Hebrew means “to remember,” and a Sabbath Candle-Lighting by event participants, including 9/11 surviving family members. Piano music by Emmy-nominated Marty Goetz and a slideshow of those who lost their lives that day will accompany the opening. On Saturday, Sept. 11, the conference will continue with worship and speakers and will incorporate moments of silence and prayer commemorating the exact times each plane struck the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and when the fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania.

“I will never forget the feeling of that day as our country came together. As one, we arose and stood together in the face of great terror and adversity,” said Glaser. “Twenty years later, we are uniting to reflect not only on what was lost but what was learned while taking a look at the new Middle East. We hope many individuals will join us for this historic time of prayer for God’s hands to move.”
